Poe Elementary Spark Park – Visiting Houston’s Parks, One Week at a Time

Poe Spark Park Navy Seal Climbing Course
Address:  5100 Hazard Street, Houston, Texas 77098

The Houston Park of the week is the Poe Elementary School Spark Park!  The Spark program was developed to increase park space in Houston by developing public school grounds into neighborhood parks. These parks are open on school day evenings and on weekends and holidays.

The Poe Elementary School Spark Park is behind Poe Elementary on South Boulevard at Hazard.  (The Poe Co playground on North and Hazard is a private playground.)  The playground is surrounded by a 6 foot fence and you can enter by the parking lot on South Boulevard.

Poe Spark Park Play Structure
Here you will find a big ball field, monkey bars, two play structures, bars and many climbing structures.  It is one of these climbing structures that made this playground my son’s favorite in Houston.
