Sixth Ward Dow School Park undergoing renovation
The Dow School Park is undergoing a $920,000 renovation with the help of the Old Sixth Ward TIRZ and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department. The park is located on the former school campus that is now occupied by the nonprofit Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts, or MECA, at 1900 Kane St., Houston. Construction began in mid-May and is expected to be completed later this year, adding new playground equipment, an upgraded basketball court, an outdoor “long house” seating area that reflects the architectural elements of the Old Sixth Ward, trees and new fencing. www.old6wardtirz.org
