This is the last week for The Ice... I think it's amazing to have an outdoor ice rink in downtown Houston where the weather has varied from the 30's to the 70's this winter. My family and I went down to the park this past weekend and very much enjoyed the festivities. They had several booths of Ice Sculptors hard at work... a nice playground, ice skating, and huge grassy areas to run around and play on!
I would definitely add information about this park to your buyer kits for people relocating to the Houston Metro area!!!
