Houstonist has added the cause of the West 11th Street Park in Timbergrove to its list or preservationist crusades. It's definitely worthy - there's nothing like this park anywhere in the area. I need to drive by it and take some pictures so you can see what it looks like. Trust me when I say that if it gets sold off, it will be razed and McMansioned before you can say "floodwater retention capability". And that would be bad.
This recent Chron story has more info. I think they're going to need a rich person to step in and pony up the cash to save the place, but maybe they can swing a loan. Whatever the case, please follow some of the links at Houstonist and help out this effort if you can.
UPDATE: See Jeff Balke for more.Posted by Charles Kuffner on October 25, 2006 to Elsewhere in Houston | TrackBack
