Last weekend, Discovery Green
was proud to be voted one of the top 5 parks in America
and to share the very special spirit of Houston with more than 165,000 people at the March Madness Music Festival.
While we are always thrilled to show off our amazing city to the rest of the world, that’s not quite why the park was built. Discovery Green was founded to be a neighborhood park, providing green space in the heart of the city, an oasis where Houstonians and visitors can enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Like yoga in the park, or giggling toddlers on Tuesday mornings. Cultural festivals and family movies. A place to walk your dog and to cool off in the fountain. And on rare occasions, yes, a place to showcase the matchlessness of this great city that we call home.
Discovery Green is unique in that public generosity, NOT public tax dollars, created and now sustain this place. You can help! By making a gift today of just $25, you will be helping us plant our gardens, sod the lawns, maintain the playground and fountain, and continue to produce a robust schedule of artistic, fun, family-oriented, and healthy programs. In addition, your gift will be matched by a generous grant from Shell – doubling the impact that your gift has on maintaining this integral part of life in Houston.
Make a gift of $25 or more by April 30th, and as a special thank you, we would like to give you a 4x6 print of this fantastic photo by Katya Horner, shown below.
Give $100 or more and receive a special commemorative pillow featuring a stunning photograph by Katya Horner of Los Trompos (Spinning Tops)
, the much loved art installation created by Ignacio Cadena and Hector Esrawe.
