Whitt Johnson Park (aka Tree House Park) – Visiting Houston’s Parks, One Week at a Time
Address: Whitt Johnson Park, 6540 Wakeforest
Appropriate Age: Any Age
This is Shanna! My kids, ages 6 and 4, are on a mission to visit new Houston parks.
The tree house is a large metal and plastic play structure in the middle of the park. There are four different ways to get up or down from the tree house, but our favorite, by far, was the leaf ladder located on the inside of the “tree.” Sliding down the vine slide is also a good option.
Both were fun, but fairly typical for what we’ve seen at other parks. There is also a donkey spring rider that, for some reason, both of my kids loved.
One of the great things about this park is that it is well shaded. We went in the late morning, so the shade made a real difference in how hot we felt. The entire park is fenced and there are lots of benches, picnic tables and even a gazebo, so it was relaxing to sit and watch the kids.
