Houston's Levy Park is Back and Better Than Ever
After a $15 million makeover, Levy Park in Houston’s Upper Kirby neighborhood has reopened as a bright, engaging spot for the modern urban park-goer. A grand re-opening event this weekend drew big crowds.
The Houston park, which opened in 1941, was a baseball field and dog park that wasn’t always well-maintained. But after the redesign, the park has a children's playground with a colorful climbing wall and observation deck, an improved dog park, a performance pavilion, community gardens, a promenade, and a large activity lawn.
Activities on the park’s calendar also appeal to the younger crowd, including yoga and meditation sessions. The park plans to have a year-round calendar of activities it will post on its website.
