Pierce Park is the City of Taylor's newest addition to Parks and Recreation. Groundbreaking for the park was held December 2017. The park was funded in part by a grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation and Certificates of Obligation bonds.
The land for the park was donated by Chisum Pierce to honor his late father, Lieutenant Commander Thomas Floyd Pierce. Project LOOP raised significant funds for the park with their 50/50 initiative.
