HISTORY

Levy Park is the result of a 1941 bequest from the estate of Leon Levy. In 2015, the Upper Kirby Redevelopment Authority, in partnership with the Upper Kirby District Foundation, undertook the transformation of Levy Park into a world-class park. The 6-acre park, designed by the Office of James Burnett and Natalye Appel and Associates Architects, reopened in 2017.

Levy Park Conservancy, an affiliate of the Upper Kirby District Foundation, is the private, nonprofit organization responsible for the maintenance, operation, and programming of Levy Park, a public City of Houston Park.

Love this park. Well maintained and plenty of staff around. Usually a security guard as well. It's an easy park to spend a lot of time at with the play ground, putting green, art cart, games & book station. Definitely our favorite.
