   The official dedication of the LeTulle DreamScape at LeTulle Park will be at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 25.   
   “Safety surfacing is being installed and we are almost ready for children to play,” said Kelly Penewitt, City of Bay City Parks and Recreation supervisor. 
   “We invite the public out to join us as we celebrate children of all abilities at our barn-themed play structures. This project has long been a dream of Bay City and its citizens for several years and it is now coming true,” Penewitt said.
The Le Tulle Park DreamScape received a Houston Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) Parks and Natural Areas Award.  
   H-GAC established the Parks and Natural Areas awards program in 2006 to highlight best practices and innovative approaches to parks planning and implementation. 
   H-GAC honors projects in the categories of Projects Over $500,000, Projects Under $500,000, Planning Process, and Policy Tools.  
   This program recognizes outstanding parks and natural areas around the region. 
   After the dedication, the city will host the Second Annual Camo Half K, beginning at 11 a.m. to raise funds for amenities, such as shade pergolas and trash receptacles to be placed outside of the play area.
Registration is under way for the Half K, the fee is $25 (includes shirt, bag, medal and finish line photo). You can register at the Municipal Services Building at 1217 Avenue J. 
   Dreamscape was made possible from local donations, funding from the Bay City Community Development Corporation, The City of Bay City and a grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife. Chevron-Phillips recently donated eight recycled plastic benches to be set around the area for parents to watch their children play.
