Are they finally going to remove the statue of that swindler Stanford from the rose garden?

We have very few affordable golf courses in town as it is. How about a better course

THIS.  Roommate and I took a trip up to Dallas recently.  The municipal/public courses up there are leaps and bounds better than what Houston has to offer.  Herman really needs to get it together.  It could be a great inner loop course... See memorial park.

Beginning this week, the entire site, save for the existing parking lot, has been fenced and clearing work has begun.  I assume they will not close the existing parking lot until the new lot is built?

 

Unfortunately, have cleared a lot of old trees.

Is that gonna be a permanent fixture?

 

That pagoda was in the garden area that is being re-done into Centennial Gardens.  They are moving it out of there as part of the redo.  Not sure where it is going to end up.

That pyramid thing is interesting. I wonder if it'll have an interesting view on top. This city is so flat that even a little hill can make a cool vantage point for photography.

The Miller Outdoor theatre hill has a great view all around. This one may be a little smaller. It's hard to tell now.

I think I read they hope it becomes a really popular site for weddings so you can't have it too high just high enough for the bride and groom to be the focus point

I just saw it yesterday. The mount is much higher than 15 feet. Think 20 to 25 feet. The long berm along the parking lot/south side is about that high. Weddings on the spirilling mount? That'd be a long procession. The couple would look like the figures on top of the Wedding Cake, however.
