A pocket wilderness in the heart of Houston.

West 11 Street Park


This beautiful 20.2-acre pocket wilderness, acquired in 2007, is the largest tract of native Texas forest inside the 610 loop to be added to the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department’s inventory in recent years. With a rapidly growing and diverse understory and serene wooded trails, it represents a haven for wildlife and for those of us seeking respite from the stresses of urban living.

Our thanks to the Rotary Club of Houston Heights for their generous contribution to support the Wireless Wilderness Cell Phone tour at West 11th Street Park.
