Sugar Land, TX – The Sugar Land Parks and Recreation Department in association with the Sugar Land Legacy Foundation and Sugar Land 4B Corporation recently completed Phase II of the Eagle Plaza Project located inside of Sugar Land Memorial Park.
The plaza provides an amphitheater-style gathering and memorial space surrounding the eagle sculpture. Sugar Land residents Col. R.P.S. Bhalla and his wife, Kanwal, donated $100,000 to the Sugar Land Legacy Foundation for the plaza development.
Additional donations were provided by former Mayor Jimmy Thompson and his wife, Nancy; Brooke Thompson (in memory of Bob Brown); the Amy and Gary Becker Foundation, John Null; and members of the Sugar Land Executive Team. A listing of all donors is on a plaque near the statue.
