Discovery Green – Houston’s Newest City Park
I am well aware of the fact that for citizens of most other cities around the world having a new park may seem a not-so-newsworthy item to report except that for our fair city, a new park is most certainly a welcome change and a badly needed upgrade. Houston’s largest park is Memorial Park, which happens to be larger than NYC’s Central Park. However, yesterday was the opening day for “Discovery Green”, a small (13 acre) park right in the heart of downtown Houston and across from the George R. Brown Convention Center. Finally, downtown residents can have a place to hang out and relax and enjoy some green space. Hundreds of people turned out yesterday for the ribbon cutting ceremony at 12 noon attended to by his Honor, the Mayor, Bill White.
