As J-Vibe explores the city, we are finding so many real discoveries that we can’t wait to share with all of you. Houston is spread out in many directions, and there a lots of nooks and crannies to explore, and it is a great place to get ‘lost’. Each of the areas in Houston has its own distinctive flavor, and we want to show you what you will see when you go and explore and give you a taste of the sights. Our hope is that it will encourage you to visit these spots and post your own pictures on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hashtag, #WhatWeSeeHouston. This week in Houston, what you will see is in MacGregor Park, where the trees are green, the natives are friendly, and there is a ton to do.
MacGregor Park is 82.79 acres located on the southeast side of the city. It sits between Almeda, Old Spanish Trail, and Calhoun, right behind the University of Houston. The MacGregor Way parkways, which line Brays Bayou from Almeda Road to Calhoun Road, were designed as access roads to the park. MacGregor Park is chock full of things to do. The park itself offers a playground, Homer Ford Tennis Center, a lighted sports field, a swimming pool, a weight room, a meeting room, an 18-hole disc golf course, a 1.25-mile hike and bike trail, picnic areas, and an outdoor basketball pavilion.
The Community Center, which is the heart of MacGregor Park, is a social mecca and offers a slew of after-school enrichment classes and can be rented out for special functions.
What You Will See in MacGregor Park
It’s not just the activities you can enjoy that make MacGregor Park so fantastic or the people that work there, volunteer there and enjoy the park, but also the sights you will see at the park. Take a day, an afternoon or even an early evening and go to this beautiful park and take lots of pictures and then tell everyone #whatyouseeHouston!
