Transcript 26 Montrose Voice / June 18, 1982 Neighborhood The many mini-parks of Montrose Photostory by Ed Martinez One of the things that makes a city livable is parks. In Paris, where land is astronomically expensive, every time a piece of land becomes available, there is a widespread and heated debate as to do what to do with it. Almost invariably, the end result is another park, in spite ofthe loss to the city in economic value, taxes, and so forth. This is one of the reasons Paris is the world's most beautiful city. They simply feel that the quality of life is more important than its financial value. In Houston, in contrast, real estate developers and financiers seize every strategic open space and throw up huge office buildings, apartment complexes and shopping centers. This is understandable, since Houston, a city in its adolescence, has a lot of open space to waste, with plenty of space left to be devoted to future parks. Still, people need greenery, they need trees not jealously guarded by security personnel for the exclusive use of tenants. People need free and readily available grassy knolls to tie on. to stare up at the sky on, for children to frolic in. In short, people need parks. Not only that, they need not only big parks, like Hermann and Memorial Parks, which must be driven to frequently from long distances, they need parks located in neighborhoods all over the city. These small parks, sometimes called pocket parks, abound in the inner city, giving Montrose much of its charm and sophistication. In no other section of Houston, a city slavishly bound hand and foot by the automobile and limited to enjoyment of places accessible by automobile, are so many open spaces there for the asking, and often in easy walking distance. This is one ofthe most inviting features of the mini-parks of Montrose, that they are accessible on foot. Bell Park, for instance, at the corner of Montrose and Banks, offers a block-long park with a stream wandering through trees and lawns. Benches for seating are available, and the whole is located less than a mile from both the Museum of Fine Arts and Westheimer Road. Fronting on heavily travelled Montrose Boulevard, Bell Park offers sanctuary and a quiet place for contemplation and rest. Cherryhurst Park, a square block on Cherryhurst two blocks from Westheimer, provides recreation and sports facilities for nearby residents. With swings, slides, basketball court and tennis courts, Cherryhurst Park is a natural gathering place for people in Montrose who take their exercising seriously. Children can play, pets can be safely ignored and the pressure of life in Houston can be momentarily relieved. Rothko Chapel Park, at the corner of Sul Children playing in Cherryhurst Park Ross and Mulberry, offers residents on the south side of Westheimer a place of repose and serenity. Located next to the renowned Rothko Chapel and the reflecting pool with its obelisk sculpture, Rothko Chapel Park offers manicured lawns and Biking in Bell Park trees that make sculpture against a summer sky. Here one can just be, with no great need to do anything. A neat, well-tended open piece of greenery offers welcome change to eyes saturated with man made structures that arc springing up everywhere in a city that Beams obsessed with new buildings. There are many other parks like these, all adding up to integral pieces in a tapesty that is Montrose, Houston's most livable neighborhood.
