Levy Park Levy Park is undergoing a $10 million renovation.

HOUSTON—After opening 25 years ago, New York City’s Bryant Park has been totally transformed and in Dallas, Klyde Warren Park has emerged from an eyesore freeway to a green space built atop the freeway to unite the previously divided city. The newest privately managed urban park, Levy Park, opens on February 25.

A public green space in the Upper Kirby District area of inner-city Houston, Levy Park is undergoing a $10 million renovation that will create a gathering place and an entertainment and recreation destination. 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 more than $12 million in public park amenities to transform Levy Park into an urban space and improve the city’s real estate landscape.
