Houston Park Created Where Blight Once Existed

A long-abandoned apartment complex had been a hotbed for crime and an eyesore for nearby residents and for White Oak Bayou Greenway trail users before Houston Parks and Recreation Department, Houston Park Board and various other groups bought the land and transformed it into a park. As a newly revealed greenspace emerged from the demolition, Houston Parks Board saw an opportunity for improvements that go beyond standard meadow grasses. They created unique amenities to the surrounding community, and as a result, took the initiative to find the resources to enhance the greenspace and provide access to White Oak Bayou Greenway. The land will be maintained and protected forever, and trail users and nearby residents now have a beautiful new amenity to enjoy for generations.
