As I said in an earlier post, Houston already does well with parks. The city has great parks, IMO, and I feel I can say that having been to major parks in cities like Chicago, San Diego, London and Paris. The major parks in Houston stack up pretty well.
But parks are like icing on the cake. We NEED to put some money into our sidewalks, bike lanes (though those are getting better), and basic infrastructure. That's where the real problem lies. Houston has neglected its sidewalks for far too long... always putting it on the backs of business owners and homeowners to fix when that is very well a responsibility of the city.
