Menil Collection Park – Visiting Houston’s Parks, One Week at a Time

Picnic at Menil Park
Address:  1533 Sul Ross Street, Houston, Texas 77006

Just east of the Menil Collection and west of the Rothko Chapel is a nice green park filled with giant old oak trees and one red swing.  This is the park to go to if you are looking to relax, have a picnic and climb trees.

Red Swing at Menil Park
My kids love this park.  We often go to ride bikes around the Menil Collection, run through the grass, swing on the one red swing, climb trees and enjoy the Bygones Sculpture.

On nice afternoons and on weekends, this park is filled with students, young adults and families, enjoying this green space in the city.   St. Thomas University is just a block away, the Rothko Chapel and Menil are next door and and a bunch of gray Menil-owned bungalows surround the park.  A block away in all directions is residential.

There are a lot of runners and walkers passing through and enough traffic to make it feel safe.

Menil Park Sculpture
The Menil Park does not have a restroom but you can find one at the Menil Collection (Wednesday through Sunday).  The Menil always has free admission.

I recommend you check out this park and walk around the whole neighborhood… see this list of things to do in Montrose with kids!
