Each week we pack up the car and look for green spots on the Houston map. On this particular adventure, Matzke Park was the 4th stop and my 8 year old was certain that he did not want to go. He was absolutely not playing at one more spot and would read his book on the bench.
The only problem was, when we pulled up to Matzke Park , we saw the spider web and there is no saying "no" to a spider web. We LOVE spider webs.
The main play structure is "barrier-free" so all abilities can use the ramps and play on the equipment. And this also means the side bars go all the way to the bridges and platforms, so little ones can't slip off when running across the bridges.
Parking is free in 2 lots. The one near the playground was pretty full, but the one on the opposite side of the park had several available spaces.
