Sesquicentennial Park

A hidden spot right in the heart of downtown Houston.

A view of Mel Chin's seven 70-foot pillars at Sesquicentennial Park in Houston, Texas

One of Houston's best-kept secrets: featuring a playful waterfall flowing down to the landscaped grounds of Buffalo Bayou, it is part of a winding waterway that offers hiking and biking trails and kayaking through downtown. Also of note is the monument of former president George H.W. Bush and visitors will find artist Mel Chin's seven 70-foot pillars that pay tribute to Houston's history through themes such as agriculture and philanthropy.
