Market Square Park
This was my initial view of Market Square Park; and what drew me to take a closer look. I was not intrigued by overflowing flower beds or well groomed trees, rather the benches and table! I wanted to take a closer look; and I was not disappointed.
I happened upon Market Square Park, located in the Historic District of Downtown Houston, Texas, while looking for their 9-11 Memorial; which I will share with you in the future. This is not a vast, lush, green space, as one my expect for a major city’s park; rather it is a smaller, urban area, that brims with public art.
Yet what I loved was that it seemed to be designed to welcome people into the space, offering them a respite from what life can so easily become in our hurried world, as well as a touch of beauty that will not fade with the seasons.
For good measure . . . a dog!
And a fountain.
