Mayor Annise Parker, Bob Eury and a host of luminaries break the plates to open the renovated Market Square Park... the 174 year-old original market square of Houston. Music by John Evans Band... and brought to you by Houston Downtown District.

Market Square Park is at long last being reclaimed as the bustling center of downtown Houston's Historic District. The new park is a true neighborhood space, anchored by a central lawn where more than one City Hall once stood. A crescent-shaped dog run on the park's west side gives the canine contingent an attractive and active place to let loose. A beautifully lit fence and walkway arc through the park and provides insight to the history of the area. And if you're hungry, check out Houston classic Niko Niko's, where you'll find delightfully shady, outdoor seating, a plaza for performances and classic Greek and American favorites. For musical delights, come out and hear Houston bands from The Houston Sound. Take a quiet moment in Lauren's Garden, a memorial that honors Lauren Catuzzi Grandcolas -- a passenger on United Flight 93. With its flowing water, beautiful sculpture, seasonal flowers and leafy trees, the garden memorializes all lost on September 11.
