Wonderful way to discover Houston. Great pic opportunities! Right on the bayou, which is always hosting something. Nice picnic area, statue of daddy Bush. Lots of metered parking. Have fun and enjoy! Just follow the path!

If you like places that give you a glimpse into a previous time, this park is it. Even tho' it is placed in the center of the Houston hubbub, it gives that glimpse into early Texas. Charming houses/buildings from previous centuries moved to this space...More
