This is Shanna!  My kids, ages 6 and 4, and I are on a mission to visit a new Houston Park each week this summer.  This week we visited Bellaire Town Square.

Bellaire Town Square Train
We’ve got a new park to add to our list of all-time favorites. If you haven’t been to the fitness playground at Bellaire Town Square you should definitely put it on your to-do list.

There are swings, spring riders, a stationary train, and a traditional play structure for small children, but the best part is the larger play structure. Not only is it fun, it is also a challenge. Spinning hoops, spider webs of ropes for climbing, balance boards, and suspended rings to move through are some of the elements that kept my kids engaged and problem-solving the whole time we were there.

It was interesting to see them figuring out how to move from one ring to the next without falling. I will admit that even though I’m very confident of their physical abilities I was right there beside them the first time they went through!

There are also several fitness stations for adults in the same area so you can get a workout while keeping an eye on the kids. In addition to the playground there are lots of benches and picnic tables, a jogging trail, a gazebo, tennis courts, a recreation center and a family aquatic center.

Bellaire Town Square Pool
The pool, complete with slides and a play area, wasn’t open while we were there, but kids made me promise we’d go swimming there this summer. If you’re interested in learning about hours and fees for the recreation center and aquatic center go HERE.

If you do choose to visit this park we may see you there!

  1. Do you know if there was a bathroom at this park?
    THANK YOU!

    • There is a pool and rec center next door, and I believe there are bathrooms here… but I will check! More to come…

      • Here is what BKSC readers have said:

        We use the restrooms at the aquatic center.

        If city hall or the aquatic center are open, then you can use those. Or the library (across Jessamine St). If not, then I think you might be out of luck

      • Thank you!

    • There is a separate bathroom accessible to folks using the park (on the outside facing part of the aquatics center building).

        Christi – Here is what other parents have said: We use the restrooms at the aquatic center.
