We are so grateful for the people who have shared their gifts, talents and time with us through the years! Our dream has always been for The Children’s Park to be a community park and our volunteers are a big part of it!! To learn more about volunteer opportunities, please complete our Volunteer Form
The Brook Hill School
Each year during the week leading up to Easter all 6th-12th grade students from The Brook Hill School in Bullard, TX put their studies on hold for a day in order to go out and serve the East Texas community at a variety of locations. For Brook Hill students, this day is called OASIS Day, an acronym for Others Are Served Instead of Self. Mrs. Kameron Aycock’s group of 8 sophomore girls were excited to serve at the Children’s Park by cleaning the many plaques in the park as well as scrubbing the name stones so that every stone honoring a child was clean and clear of the debris and dirt that can settle in the names carved into the stones. The girls worked non-stop for 3 hours until all of the stones and plaques had been tended to, then they celebrated with prayer and a picnic in the park.
Carol King has such a heart for The Children’s Park! She has blessed us by leading worship for our Annual Day of Remembrance since 2009. Carol is a passionate Worship Leader and guitar teacher. As she serves with her musical talent throughout various ministries in our community, her desire is to bring honor and glory to God by helping people draw closer to the Lord through music and God’s Word. She has been married to Bob King for 27 years and has two teenage boys. She and her family attend Grace Community Church in Tyler.

David loves spending time with children! Whether he’s telling stories, making balloon creations or playing his ukulele, he’s always available to participate in our events at The Children’s Park. We are so blessed to know him!!
Jim and Liz Bell
Jim and Liz are faithful volunteers at the park! They always show up with a smile on their faces with a tremendous willingness to serve. They became intimately acquainted with the park after losing their son Russell in Afghanistan. During our Phase II Grand Opening, we dedicated Russell’s Flagpole which proudly stands n front of Alison’s House.
Cynthia is April’s right hand girl! She is always available to help at our information table. We are so appreciative of her time and willingness to serve at all of our events!!
The City of Tyler
Since the opening of the park in 2001, the City of Tyler Parks & Recreation Department have been an unbelievable blessing to the park, always ready to do what needs to be done to make and keep the park looking beautiful. We are so grateful for their ongoing availability and partnership!!!
Shannon has the gift of beautiful handwriting! For years she has been volunteering to write the names on our angels at our annual Day of Remembrance. It’s just one way she chooses to keep her son Noah’s memory burning brightly.
