Nellie Keyes Park, 801 Lester, 77007

The Houston Parks Board is pleased to partner with the Association of Washington Avenue Neighbors (AWAN) to make improvements to Nellie Keyes Park.

AWAN has been actively working to coordinate reforestation, tree watering, drainage improvements and other beautification efforts in Nellie Keyes Park. Thanks to almost $6,000 in private donations and partnership with the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, Urban Harvest and Trees for Houston, 35 new trees, including 10 fruit trees, have been planted in the park. Funds are now being raised to install a new swing set and shade canopy in the park.
