Since its founding at the Turning Basin, Hidalgo Park has been at the center of the East End’s cultural and civic life. Neighborhood residents raised money to purchase the park’s original land and sponsored the creation of its unqiure quiosco (gazebo). Hidalgo Park was acquired by the City of Houston Parks & Recreation Department in 1927.
Hidalgo Park includes a quiosco (gazebo with concrete columns and railings to look like tree trunks), a creative wooden playground designed and partially funded by neighborhood children, and a baseball field. The park is also one of five Houston parks selected for water playgrounds, donated by H-E-B.
