Sesquicentennial Park

Your Houston trip would never be complete without going to Sesquicentennial Park in downtown Houston. Since 1989 it served as a commemoration of the 150th year anniversary of the founding of Houston and Texas in 1986. The park is established along the Buffalo Bayou and provides for a great place for families to spend a relaxing and memorable day together.


The biggest attraction in Sesquicentennial Park is the “Seven Wonder”, which is a set of seven pillars illuminated from the inside which is a product of mind by Mel Chin. There are other several attractions like the displays of sculptures by the local artists in Houston.
