River Oaks Park (aka Pumpkin Park) – Visiting Houston Parks, One Week at a Time!
BigKidSmallCity readers told me to go back and see the new park… and I have to say… this has made it’s way to my favorite parks list!
River Oaks Park has a community center, trail, room to run, basketball court, volleyball court… and a fully fenced playground with amazing equipment.
Fortunately it is fenced in, shaded by giant oak trees and has a lot of benches and tables… so as the kids are running from pumpkin carriage to rock wall to circle monkey bars to chain climbers to spinners to spring riders… you can sit and enjoy the view!
After playing at the playground, we ran around the trail and pushed our little trucks through the sand volleyball court. This was a REALLY GOOD PARK!
Free parking is available on the street and the neighborhood is very nice. The park backs up to the busy Westheimer, so there is some street traffic… but the fence keeps kids safe.
There are restrooms, but they were locked when we visited.
