Welcome to West 11th Street Park!
I'm Houston mayor, Annise Parker, and I hope you enjoy your visit to this beautiful 21-acre forest in the heart of our city. This is one of Houston's newest city parks, officially dedicated in 2008.
It was preserved as a natural area through the cooperation of officials from local and state government, and the generous support of local residents and businesses.
You're currently at the beginning of the Wireless Wilderness tour, created by Friends of West 11th Street Park, a non-profit organization. The goal of this tour is to help you enjoy the park by understanding more about the ecology of this unique urban forest.
As you walk the trails, you'll see small signs that have been placed at locations of interest. Just follow the instructions on the sign and use your cell phone or smart phone to learn more about each location.
Have fun in the park!
The Wireless Wilderness Cell Phone Tour is made possible, in part, by a generous contribution from the Rotary Club of Houston Heights.
