As far as Houston Spark Parks go, this has to be one of the best… it’s Travis Spark Park!


Travis Spark Park Playstructure
This park is in a nice Heights neighborhood and has a challenging play structure, rock wall, sandbox, fitness center, spinning center… and dinosaur bones!

Want to know how this park got so cool?  The kids designed it!  Go HERE for the story.

Travis Spark Park Climbing
The Spark Park Program develops school parks into neighborhood parks as a way to increase green space in Houston. Travis Spark Park gates open after school activities end and throughout weekends, holidays, and summer months for everyone to enjoy.

Travis Spark Park Rock Wall
Free street parking is available and the gates should be open when school is not in session.  When we visited, we had to walk about to find an opening… but it was the gate by the blue traditional play structure that was unlocked.

Travis Spark Park Dinosaur Bones
Once inside, the kids could have played all day.  The playground has lots of ladders and challenging structures.  And next door is a rock wall and giant dinosaur bones!

Travis Spark Park Spinners Houston Heights
In the corner, there are spinning structures… some you stand on, some you sit in… and all make you dizzy.

In the other corner, there are fitness stations for young Ninja Warriors.

All in all, this is a really good park.  The playground is fully fenced so the kids stay inside, but it’s low so neighbors can help keep an eye on the park.  No restrooms, so plan ahead.
