New park in Houston

More old news for you.

New park will provide downtown oasis
— reported by KHOU CBS Channel 111


The city government and a private conservancy plan to develop the land into a new urban park complete with two restaurants, fountains, and ponds with boats — and maybe underground parking.

“There’ll be a puppet theater. There’ll be a multi-purpose ampitheater for evening movies, for music, for all kinds of events,” said Mary Margaret Jones, landscape architect. “There’ll be gardens and within the gardens, there’ll be bacchi courts and a putting green.”

So within two years, something more than empty land and empty park benches should await the downtown office workers who come here for lunch and the familes who come here to visit.
