About #ParksByYou Stories
This is a new initiative by Houston Parks Board to share stories about Houstonians' most meaningful park moments across our city.
Riding Without Headphones
The reality is that many people have been walking or biking to work without these paths for years and years. These new trails create a safer, healthier lifestyle for everyone.
Running at Sunrise
What brings us together is a spirit of openness. We’re much more than a running group.
It’s really like a family. We get together all the time.
A Handful of Milkweed Seeds
It’s nice to have some shade. It makes the experience something everyone can enjoy.
Finding Our Own Place
The place is wide open for my kids to explore and create their own reality. It’s their home.
Sassy Silver Steppers
It’s nice to know there’s a world out there that can be enjoyed and you don’t just have to sit at home in your rocking chair.
Trails For Everyone
These trails are clean, safe and wide—there’s so much space for them to ride around in.
Creating our own neighborhood park
By the time we were done, we had a picnic table, a barbecue pit, a bike rack fence, and even a chimney swift tower for birds.
Fellowship in Good Company
You want to enjoy it while you have it. You want to take your shoes off and walk around and absorb that energy out there.
The Earth Is for all of us
We’re the Madres del Parque.
