I am a native houstonian who until recently did not know such a beautiful place existed. It's hard to believe that I live less than 10 mins from this park and never once noticed it was there. It started when my son and I decided to walk downtown instead of taking the bus or the light rail to take pictures for a school project - Flat Stanley. The park was on the corner of Preston and Smith and it was an amazing view. For Houston the weather was merciful, a cool sunny day with a gentle breeze and the grass was freshly mowed. With the George Bush monument on one side of the bayou and the Wortham center on the other, it was a perfect site for pictures with Flat Stanley.
