Wier Park – Visiting Houston’s Parks, One Week at a Time
Wier Park is in West University on Nottingham at Sunset. Here you will find play structures for big kids and little kids, picnic tables, tennis courts (reservation required) and a basketball court. This park is really quite great.
The big structure has a spiral staircase ladder and an unusual chain ladder. The small structure has easy to climb rock walls.
The play area also has little flower-like spinners. The kids sit in the little pods and spin. There is also a small round boulder to climb and a little “restaurant window” to play shop.
Beyond the play areas is a big grassy area for running, more picnic tables and a basketball court.
Wier Park is in a nice neighborhood with a good amount of pedestrian traffic. The playground is fully fenced in but visible from the street, which makes it feel safe. I did not notice any bathrooms, so plan ahead!
This park was pretty popular with the preschool crowd on a weekday morning. There were several other toddlers running around as James explored.
James had a great time climbing, spinning and sliding. This is him in his fireman gear and it was not Halloween. Baby James is a fireman every day. Really.
