about Sylvan Rodriguez Park:
The wide-open space is perfect for watching fighter jets from nearby Ellington Field take off and maneuver across the sky, flying kites on windy days, and viewing the stars on clear nights. The park also features a walking trail system covering over two miles through thick wooded area where sightings of wildlife are common.
A crescent-shaped basin, like a small lake, provides a relaxing oasis around which to stroll or ride bikes, and set into the ground is a brick labyrinth surrounded by stone pillars aligned for the equinox - ideal for a meditative walk.
The Park has lacrosse fields and large grass fields for playing ball, throwing a Frisbee, or letting your dog run around. Amenities include restrooms (no changing tables), plenty of benches, and drinking fountains - even a ground-level drinking fountain for dogs!
An acoustically-tempting, domed pavilion provides shade, a couple of wheelchair-accessible picnic tables, and an opportunity for kids to delight in shouting to create echoes.
