Grand Opening of Tupelo Park: June 12 9am-11am

So, I randomly found this park (with a friend who got lost, clears throat) in March when we went to the Village of Creekside to take pictures of Bluebonnets. Believe it or not, I like it more than the Rob Fleming Playground. Did you hear me say that aloud? Pretty much it has all the nice things Rob Fleming has, and more! I really like how it is right by the water (which was brown when we were there). RF is still the best place in The Woodlands to Fly a kite!

Be warned that there isn't much parking at Tupelo, and that it will start getting hot before 11am. Definitely visit this park at sometime. It is hidden a little bit.

Here is the press release:
