Market Square Park
Houston, TX 77002
Houston Press' Description
Smack-dab in the middle of downtown's historic district, Market Square was ringed with bouncer-inhabited nightclubs and young, pretty patrons not that long ago. Now it's a bustling bar area that draws a more professional, mature crowd. Market Square Park is smack-dab in the midst of the bar chaos, and even boasts its own small pavilion area for outdoor concerts, when the weather is nice.
Welcome to Houston's premier urban park in the heart of downtown's Historic District! The newly re-designed park features two amazing dog runs, shade trees, gardens, art, history and Niko Niko's Greek Cafe. See you there!
