The event kicked off at 10am and Grupo Fantasma closed the event at 6pm. The park aimed to showcase Houston's diverse arts community and programmatic partners including yoga, tai chi, Zumba live music, dance, food trucks, literary programming and more.

The six acres of land was donated to Houston by Leon Levy and has been crucial to Upper Kirby District's development.

The park previously housed ball fields, a community garden and a dog park, but the new Levy Park is akin to Discovery Green.

Levy Park will bring back the community garden and dog park, but is also adding a performance pavilion, a playground with a climbing wall and a seven-foot slide, and throughout the park will be water features and bouncy, padded pathways.

The park will also offer fitness classes including yoga, tai chi, and Pilates.

Levy Park is located at 3801 Eastside St. Houston, TX 77098.
