PostHeaderIcon Views of Houston; Jogging Past Tranquility Park

Tranquility Park, downtown Houston, sits next to City Hall and is one of the parks created to sit on top of the underground parking system that serves the Theater District and City Hall -- and includes entrances to the Houston Tunnel System which connects virtually all of downtown.

The system of interconnected tunnels and public skywalks makes it possible to traverse downtown from end-to-end (during regular business hours) without ever going outside. During the week, it's possible to enter the tunnels at Tranquility Park and walk all the way to the other side of downtown, coming up at Discovery Green -- Houston's newest park addition.
