City of Rockport | Reliant Energy Funding Construction of New Compass Rose Pavilion

What's this icon mean?

The pavilion that has graced Compass Rose Park will be reconstructed thanks to funding from Houston-based Reliant Energy. The pavilion, aka the gazebo, sustained major damage after Hurricane Harvey.

The structure will be rebuilt on top of the existing 16’ x 16’ pad. It will incorporate a hip-style roof with decking and hurricane rated underlayment and shingles. It will be painted white with a blue composition asphalt shingle top, which will complement the existing park and add a more coastal look. Contractor for the project is Clyde Crocker Construction.

According to Parks and Leisure Services Director Rick Martinez, the City was contacted directly by Reliant Energy, which offered assistance within the park system. “Not only has the gazebo been the anchor of the park, it’s also a popular spot for viewing the plants and provides incredible vistas of Little Bay,” he stated. “Time and budget restraints had put the recovery of this building on the back burner. We’re so pleased that Reliant has stepped forward to make this happen for the citizens and visitors of Rockport.”

Cost for the project is $9.200 with an estimated completion date of late October.
