Fleming ParkMeet Shanna, the mother of 2 kids and an inspiration for BigKidSmallCity.  She is on a mission to take her 4 and 6 year old to a new Houston Park each week this summer.  And she has agreed to tell us all about each one.

But before she does this, she needs recommendations on your favorite Houston Parks.  And, Shanna is willing to give away one $20 Mission Burrito Gift Card to those that contribute!  (And the location on West Alabama has a playground for the kids!)

  1. Tiffany says:

    Of course Hermann Park rocksbecause of all of the stuff to do. But for coolplay structures I like Fire Truck Park.

  2. I like Donovan Park in the Heights! It’s just a different style you don’t see many places, and it seems like a good playground for role playing.

  3. Donovan Park, Cherryhurst, River Park.

  4. Kristina Harper says:

    There are two parks that come to mind.
    The first we call the Firetruck Park in Southside place. There are shaded areas, covered picnic tables, fun climbing structures.

    The other is in Bellaire (it is acutally two parks across the street from each other). It is basically the Bellaire Nature Center. Inside that is the Russ Pittman park. But ACROSS the street from that is another park called Evergreen Park http://www.bellaireparks.org/BELLAIRESPARKS/EVERGREENPARKANDPOOL.aspx. It has a lot of shade and some different climbing structures. You can go back and forth between the two parks.

    Finally, is you happen to be out in Pearland we like Centennial Park. It has a fun splashpad and park.

    Can’t wait to hear about all of your adventures!

  5. Fire truck park, Judson park, Discovery Green, weir park

  6. Proctor Park! Milroy Park, Donovan Park. All in the Heights. But we love Hermann Park too!

  7. West university elementary school playground on edloe and university. Go when school is out and head to edloe street cafe for lunch or dinner where kids get a free ice-cream.

  8. My favorite park is McClendon Park! It has 2 playscapes, splash pad, rock climbing wall, volley ball court, walking trail, restrooms, and nice picnic areas.

  9. We recently found Settegast Park near downtown. Nice playground with a splashpad. It also wasn’t crowded on a Saturday morning!

  10. We love River Oaks Park (Pumpkin Park) and Fleming Park on Sunset. Lots of shade, space, and charm.
