Cullen Park in Houston, Texas

The Corps of Engineers agreed to lease a huge piece of land in 1973 to the City of Houston.  This is now Cullen Park.  It’s over 9,200 acres.  The acres however, are chopped up a bit with various access parts into the park.  There are baseball fields, soccer fields, pavilions, picnic areas, grills, paved trails, an old, historic cemetery,  multiple playground areas, water playground and even an archery range.

I enjoy going to this one particular part of the park as there is a nearby airport so planes fly low over the park here!

I did use a telephoto lens for this shot but not a strong one, so you can see how close the airport is in relation to the park

Like any park though, don’t leave your car unlocked or anything to attract thief’s attention, this happened to my niece so just a little heads up.

Many of the playground areas are in shaded areas – appreciated in the summer!!
