DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — Visitors to Texoma Health Foundation Park will soon have expanded parking options.

The city council approved $367,000 to add 50 parking spaces; $250,000 of the total is funded through a grant from the American Rescue Plan.

Construction is scheduled to begin at the end of the month and wrap up between two to three months. 

"Summer is the time that we have identified is the best for construction," said Denison Parks and Recreation administrative superintendent Chip Egger. "Our tournaments are a little bit smaller; our soccer season is in-between our spring and fall, so this is the best time for construction."

THF Park will remain open during the parking expansion project.

During soccer season the park sees roughly 5,000 people. 

"We're still going to allow for the same amount of soccer and we're still going to minimize the tournaments down to 25 when soccer is happening," Egger said. 

Steven Kohli visits the park with his kids frequently.  He's anticipating less of a traffic jam when it comes to parking. 

"This is one of the number one places to go during the summer, and when nothing is going on, it's the best time to come, because we know we're going to find a spot. We try to stay away from this place when we know soccer, baseball and softball are going on," Kohli said.
