Park Cities neighborhoods are celebrated often for world-class shopping, but not nearly enough for its plethora of green spaces large and small. Many are tributes to local leaders who made lasting contributions. Favorites include special needs Coffee Park, Artha Garza Park, and Elena’s Children’s Park.

Other favorites include:

1.     Williams Park

Williams Park was named in honor of Mayor Elbert Williams. It has soccer fields, tennis courts, and a fishing pier. One of artist Robert Indiana’s celebrated LOVE sculptures (there are fewer than 25 of the originals in the United States) stands proudly.

2.     Caruth Park

Benefactor W. W. Caruth Sr. deeded the land where Caruth Park stands today, one of the area’s largest with a sports field, playgrounds, a pond, and tennis ball courts.

3.     Curtis Park

Curtis Park is the area’s summer recreational hub, featuring an aquatic center with a 50-meter pool and surrounded by a lovely park.
