Just blocks from the Houston Galleria is a brand new Spark Park... the Dragon and Phoenix Spark Park at the Mandarin Immersion Magnet School!
Spark Parks are open to the public after school hours and on weekends and holidays... and this one is unique! This park has swings, bucket swings and ninja warrior style climbing structures.
You can start on one end and climb, scale and swing to the other side of the dragon. The phoenix has some spinning features and some slides... including the "broken slide" or "arm pit slide" (as named by the kids). This includes two bars you have to slide down!
Right now the park is in full sun... but the second phase of construction will add some shade and more equipment.
Also, right behind the Mandarin School is the School at St. George Place Spark Park... so you have two parks to visit at one stop. Plus, both schools have a dragon for a mascot... so you'll see dragon play structures at both spots.
Check out the pictures below and visit next time you are in the Galleria!
