Inclusion Caboose Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Saturday, September 14, 2019


Please join us Saturday, September 14, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. for the official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and grand opening of the Inclusion Caboose located in Linear Park.
The red caboose sits atop a rail car scale and next to a scale house left over from the days when the area between East 6th and 7th streets was a Southern Pacific Railroad switch yard.
The National Recreation and Park Association and The Walt Disney Company selected the city of Brownsville’s Parks and Recreation Department to transform the caboose into a lending library for children. Visitors are encourage to visit, borrow or donate books during hours of operation (Schedule TBD).
For more information about this event, and more about the Inclusion Caboose Project, please contact Gloria Gonzalez at 956-547-6857
