“One of my favorite. This park is the beating heart of the city's main artery. It provides great recreational opportunities so close to town. You can explore the park water in a kayak, take a walk in Kinder Footpaths, or ride bikes on Sandy Reed Memorial trail.”

“Nestled in Houston's Historic District, Market Square Park actually sits on the site of the original City Hall (and the three iterations that followed), providing a place for entertainment, dining, public art and—yes—green space. The goal? Create an increased sense of community for downtown's businesses and its growing number of residents. A large central lawn dominates the park, which is bordered by Congress, Travis, Preston and Milam streets.”
