The Houston Downtown Park Conservancy held a Groundbreaking Ceremony and name announcement for Houston’s new Downtown Park on October 17, 2006. The project will transform an area that is currently underused green space and parking lots into an oasis for Downtown Houston. PPS worked with the Conservancy and the community in 2005 to develop a program of uses for the new park, to ensure that it will become a major attraction for Downtown Houston, and the region. The Conservancy held a contest to name the new park, and “Discovery Green” was chosen from over 6,000 entries.
