Mandolin Gardens Park Project -- A New Dual Use Park In Houston

Mandolin Gardens Park Project -- New Park in The HP Area of Houston.

Mandolin Park

I saw an article in the Community newspaper about this park project.  Half of this park is actually a water detention area, but is now a great place to take a stroll.  If the water is high, this part of the park will be closed to the public.

The construction cost of $3,000,000 was paid by MUD 230, with no increase to taxes.  This designers of this park really took all the little details into account.  There are flowers, trees and rocks in the water area which is surrounded by the walking paths.  It looks like a fun place to take a stroll.

Here are some of the yellow wildflowers planted to add splashes of color.

All the walking paths are wheel chair friendly.

At the far end of the section that is open, there is a picnic table with a cover to shield you from rain or sun.  There are flowering plants here as well.  To the left of this picnic area is a pond for catch-and-release fishing.

They even put these cute little sayings on the concrete.

Here is a look from the far end of the section that is open now.  It is right next to the picnic area.  If you like this section, you will love the other section, which is not open yet.  Please check out my blog on the unopened section, Mandolin Gardens Park Project -- A New Dual Use Park In Houston Part II .

Looks like they did a great job on making a natural environment.

I keep seeing notices on Facebook stating, people who walk their dogs don’t bring water for them. Is there a way something can be set up for the dogs? BTW, it is a beautiful park.
