With Parks Investment, Grass Becomes Houston's Green Gold
"In April 2008, Houston Chronicle editorial cartoonist Nick Anderson characterized a shift in Houston's perception of green space," write Barry Mandel and Guy Hagstette. "Houston was beginning to launch some of the most ambitious and transformational green space projects in the country that are now changing Houston for the better."
"As current and past directors of Discovery Green, we can say with confidence that as a city, we have fully embraced the concept of parks and green space and have only begun to reap the benefits."
"With the same commitment from visionary Houstonians who created the symphony, Hermann Park and Discovery Green, we are poised for an incredible transformation of Houston that can earn our city a reputation for parks and waterways instead of concrete and freeways."
