Transcript Quiet city escapes HOUSTON PARKS OFFER TRANQUILITY WITH A GREAT VIEW RELAXING NATURALLY Fountains offered peaceful settings for those who wanted to relax on breaks at M.D. Anderson or to take jogs after work. Herman Park, Memorial and many other parks offered great places for athletes and athletic individuals to work out, relax and participate in organized sports like Bear Creek's soccer parks. ALL THIS FROM A PARK The inner-city based Tranquility Park offered a great view of downtown and the municipal building from the entrance of the park. Houstonians would visit the park at all hours of the day for a peaceful lunch, to chat or just to stroll or jog along the historical the city streets. -Hope Eugene IMMMiimiih There were over 450 parks in the city of Houston, though only a hand full were very well known in the city. Named after its land donor, George Hermann, Hermann Park had over 3 million visitors to its 545 acres of park land a every year. Located near the Museum District, it had such recreational extras as an outdoor ampitheater, a large children's playground, Japanese gardens, and was one of the more popular parks to visit in Houston. "I like it. Its great, really peaceful, and I enjoy the events that are held at the nearby Miller Outdoor Theatre," said freshman university studies major Rachel Baren. Memorial park was the largest park in Houston. With over 1,500 acres of land and 6 million visitor a year, it had a wide variety of attractions, such as a swimming and athletics center, a golf course, a 6 mile bike trail, a jogging trail, soccer and baseball fields, and more. "I think its great. Its great for running and jogging, and its a great place to just clear your mind and feel good," said sophomore education major Allison Husband. Another park that took on a more serious piece in history was Moody Park. May 8,1978, one year after the unjust murder of Jose Campos Torres1 by Houston police officers, a Cinco de Mayo celebration took place there. Gaining national attention in history as the "Moody Park Riot", police were rioted against by many Hispanics during the celebration. At least forty were arrested, and twenty were injured including two reporters. Many younger Houstonians didn't even know about the history of the park. "Wow, I didn't realize that such a small park had such an important history to Houston," said Husband. Tranquility Park was a tribute to space travel achievement by man. On the entrance to the park, these words greeted visitors with, "Houston, Tranquility Base is here, the Eagle has landed", the first words spoken from the moon. The park served a historical purpose due to Houston's NASA popularity. - Jennifer Mosquedo MORE THAN JUST A PARK Sam Houston Historical Park had beautiful homes which housed Houston's earliest residents and dated back to the mid 1800's. Sam Houston Historical Park was the original site for the Houston zoo but was later accommodated by the south side of Herman Park. -Kathy Sienko Allen's Landing park; named for the founders of Houston, the Allen brothers - was the site which the brothers first choose for the City of Houston. mwmmmmm
