Escape the City (Without Actually Leaving It) at Market Square Park
August 2, 2017 | cimgroup
It would be easy to forget that you're in the heart of downtown Houston at Market Square Park. The park offers an all-encompassing escape from the city, to the point that those skyscrapers in the background almost melt into non-existence. All you can see are the colorful blooms, the gurgling fountain, and the towering trees.
Market Square Park promises many things to do with its mix of permanent features and special events. If you have a pup at home, bring her to the dog park. There's an area for smaller pups and one for larger canines, each outfitted with water fountains that will keep them cool and hydrated in the Houston heat. You can also stroll through Lauren's Garden on your lunch break. Throughout the summer, the park also hosts live music and outdoor movies for the public to enjoy, free of charge, so check it out this season!
