Mulberry Park in Bellaire – Visiting Houston’s Parks, One Week at a Time
UPDATE: SEE THIS NEW RENOVATIONS HERE!
Mulberry Park is on a small patch of land, tucked away in a fabulous Bellaire neighborhood, and cannot be seen from the street. As you drive down Mulberry, you just see a sign and a long driveway, tucked between the houses.
The driveway takes you back to a small playground, 3 tennis courts, a little league baseball field and train tracks. The land is right by power lines and the tracks, and behind houses, so my guess is that Bellaire developed it into a space for the community rather than building more houses. If you know the real story, or want to make up a better one, tell me!
There is a climbing structure that is unlike any I’ve seen. There are ladders and poles and could keep the kids busy for a long time. The sign says it’s for school aged kids, 5 and older, but 2 year old James can’t read and didn’t care to listen.
Since this park is away from the street and no one is watching over it, I’d usually be a little concerned about safety. That said, with the busy tennis court next door, I felt very comfortable.
I did not see a restroom, so plan ahead!
