"They felt it was extremely important to help Huston Park and build on the continuation of the park," she said.
Fawley, McNarny and Ness said they hope contributions to the fund will continue.
"Hopefully there will be other businesses and individuals to step up and donate and help the park," Ness said.
Ness said the bank will not require any fees from the fund until it reaches $100,000.
The establishment of the fund comes amid the city administration's urging of the parks and recreation department and board to reduce expenses required by the city. The parks and recreation board is currently continuing its efforts in that regard by offering more than 10 park properties for sale, lease or sponsorship.
