BigKidSmallCity readers recommended Jaycee Park, so we went out to explore it on a weekday afternoon last week. As we drove through the Heights, and wove through industrial buildings, I did question the recommendation… but soon we arrived at Jaycee Park and saw what all the excitement was about.
In a very Houston-like way, Jaycee Park is surrounded by industrial warehouses on one side and a nice residential neighborhood on the other. The park that connects them is big, green, and full of things to do.
There are swings, a playground, jogging trail, tennis court, basketball court, baseball field and small splashpad. Many of the features are very unique and can keep you busy for a long time.
