ABOUT THE PARK
Levy Park has long been a hidden gem for the Upper Kirby District area. A premium public green space in the heart of inner-city Houston, Levy Park is currently undergoing a complete renovation that will create an active and vibrant gathering place for the immediate community and an entertainment and recreation destination for the City of Houston.
The Upper Kirby Redevelopment Authority, in partnership with the Upper Kirby District Foundation,
(a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization focused on community and quality of life improvements) is funding over $12 million in public park amenities to transform Levy Park into a world-class urban space.
Redevelopment of the park will feature curated, year-round programming, native landscaping and botanical experiences, one of a kind children’s play, interactive water features, a performance pavilion, an event lawn, a community garden and dog park. read more »

Levy Park’s redevelopment has been funded through a public/private partnership. The Upper Kirby Redevelopment Authority—a local government corporation—is managing the construction of the park and funds the improvements in part. The Upper Kirby District Foundation—a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit doing business as the Levy Park Conservancy—has spearheaded private fundraising. The Levy Park Conservancy will manage and maintain the park and will develop and provide its public programs.
