This Houston City Park Is Not Maintained Very Well—Sometimes We Just Need To Let Go

The picture above is of a Houston city park that, as you can see, is not being very well maintained.

You see that all around the park regulations sign are trees and flowers and weeds.

Maybe the city is returning the land to the wild.

Maybe the city has just forgotten about the park.

Maybe it was never a very good park to start.

It’s all okay. There are things in our lives that would be better if they were a bit more natural. There are things in our lives that we should simply let go of.

  1. Hey, if they need to call it a park in order to keep someone from building a condo there, call it a park.

    More weedy parks, fewer Starbucks!

  2. It was near a sewage treatment plant. So maybe no condos so far in that neck of the woods. Not yet at least.
