Montie Beach Park Improvement Initative
Montie Beach Park, 915 Northwood St., Houston, TX 77009
Montie Beach Park was acquired by the City of Houston in 1937 and is located on the eastern periphery of Greater Heights Houston. Montie Beach Park is 23 acres of mostly flat green space, making it the largest neighborhood public park in the Greater Heights with these characteristics. The park was named in honor of Mrs. Montie Beach for her explemary civic service.
Montie Beach Park is surrounded by historic neighborhoods such as Sunset Heights (North), Woodland Heights (South), Norhill (West), and Brooke Smith (East), which each have their own uniqueness and provenance. Brooke Smith, which was founded in 1904, is most directly served by the park and is the last remaining predominately Hispanic community in the Greater Heights.
The mission of the Friends of Montie Beach Park is to make the park a unique destination, rich in culture that serves the surrounding communities and a park that truly represents the communities it serves.
Donations to Houston Parks Board on behalf of Montie Beach Park will be used to create the master plan for the park's development.
