Fleming Park… Giant oak trees, pebbles on the ground and old-school wooden equipment!

Address: 1901 Sunset Blvd, Houston, TX 77005

Giant oak trees, pebbles on the ground and old-school wooden equipment… Fleming Park is one of my favorite parks!

Most parks around Houston now have brightly colored plastic equipment… but Fleming Park reminds me of my childhood and the playground at my elementary school.

Fleming Park has a big play structure, a toddler play structure, a swing set, a newer toddler swing set and cowboy themed monkey bars.
There are three different kinds of animal spring riders and two small stationary horses for little kids.

Across the lawn there are pull-up bars, tennis courts and areas for basketball and baseball.  Plus there are picnic tables scattered throughout the park.

This park is very popular and it is rarely empty.  On the weekends and after school, it is full of families.

Parking is free on the street, just check the signs before you leave your car.

Also know that there are no restrooms and that the metal slides can get hot in Houston!

This park is very busy close to the museum district and Rice University… so make a  day of it!

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

Fleming Park Small Playground
Located just to the north of Rice University, Fleming Park has character and lots of fun things to do. The play equipment here is all wood and metal and the kids loved climbing the stairs and chain ladder; crossing the bridges; and sliding down the slides, fireman’s pole and helix.

Our Review: Fleming Park is a favorite of ours. It is well shaded and located in a nice Houston neighborhood. The playground equipment is the old fashioned wood equipment and still has the fireman poles that my son loves.


The park has swings,  slides, monkey bars, big kid play equipment and smaller kid play equipment. There are several picnic tables and there are frequently birthday parties and lemonade stands.


We recommend checking it out. Maybe even grab lunch from Picnic and take it with you.
