Things to Do in Houston, with Kids… Posts on BigKidSmallCity, Published February 2-8, 2019!

There are a lot of things to do in Houston, with kids, each week… and it can be hard to keep track of it all!

To help you find all the Houston resources, weekend events, Houston parks, kid friendly restaurants and things to do… here are all the updates from this week, February 2-8, 2019.

And you can always find the “Weekend Events” category HERE.

Kid Friendly Restaurants:


See the brand new Ware Park in Bellaire!

Address: 6200 W Loop S, Bellaire, TX 77401

We go to Houston area parks almost every day… but rarely do we find one that makes me think I just MUST bring back the big kids after school.

Bellaire’s Ware Park has just been renovated… and it’s one of these parks!

The park is just a small strip of land… but the equipment is great! There are things here that I haven’t seen anywhere else… like the spinning swings (or reverse merry-go-round or…)! Plus there are rock walls and lily pads and slides and unique ladders and bars. Just look at the video:

There is a play structure for toddlers and plenty to do for big kids. The space is small… but there are so many cool things to do!

Just a few things to know before you go…

The park is located right next to 610 in Bellaire. It is fully fenced off and blocked by bushes, but the highway is noisy!

Parking is free on the street. No restrooms are available (but Feld Park, Evelyn’s Park and Nature Discovery Center are close… and all have restrooms!).

Real Food and Family Friendly: Betsy’s at Evelyn’s Park

Address: 4400 Bellaire Blvd, Bellaire, TX 77401

This is a cool place to go with kids…. there is room to run and good food!

Betsy’s is right in Bellaire’s Evelyn Park and serves up a food that’s not your typical fast park food.

This restaurant replaces The Ivy and James! In the yellow house at the side of the park is Betsy’s. There is a bright interior where you order at the counter, fill your drink and take a seat. You can sit by the bight windows or head outside to the picnic tables.

The menu is fast casual, with breakfast and park friendly food.  We ordered a kids meal burger and the pesto bowl and took our seats while it was prepared.

The great thing was how we had real food at a sleek and cool restaurant that was good for families. My friend and I ate and chatted while the kids had fun.  After we ate, we went to the slides and Alice and Wonderland Sculpture to play some more.

A couple of things to know for when you go… there is free parking at Evelyn’s Park.  If there are not spots by the restaurant, there may be some on the Mulberry side of the park.

The park has a restroom and so does the restaurant. Also, the park is on the busy Bellaire Boulevard. The restaurant is not super close, but there is no fence, so you do need to know which direction your kids are running.

In addition to being open daily, Betsy’s will feature outdoor grill nights, movies on the lawn, pop up events, and unique workshops to the Yellow House.

Look at the pictures!
