Vivagene Copeland Park is located in Southeast Hurst at 501 Pecan Drive. Established in 1993 as Bellaire North Park, it was renamed to honor Ms. Vivagene Copeland, a former City Council member. Ms. Copeland served on the Hurst City Council for 10 years, from 1991 to 2001, until she retired. She was instrumental in the development of Bellaire Park North when she noticed that the children in the Park's neighboring apartment complexes had nowhere to run and play. Ms. Copeland worked hard to ensure that there were adequate and safe facilities in that part of Hurst for children, as well as families, to enjoy.
Vivagene Copeland Park sits on 5.2 acres and is located adjacent to Bellaire Park which provides and additional 6.4 acres of park land. Combined the two parks offer space for organized sports, playground areas, a jogging/walking trail system, and a pavilion available for rent. Vivagene Copeland Park is open from Sun-Thurs 6 a.m. - 11 p.m. and Fri-Sat 6 a.m. - 12 a.m. (Midnight).

All pavilions are under the jurisdiction of the Hurst Parks and Recreation Department and may be reserved on a space available basis by individuals, organizations, and churches for a $50.00 fee (electrical outlets included) per pavilion.
