Lindsey Waterside Landing

The Lindsey Waterside Landing is a manicured lawn space on the northeast side of the park, bordering on a section of Kinder Lake. The location affords beautiful and tranquil views of the water, in addition to stunning views of Houston’s downtown skyline. The landing is also adjacent to the Monument Au Fantome, a masterpiece of modern art by Jean Dubuffet that was a gift from the Dan Duncan Family.
