Helen's Garden


Tucked away beneath 100-year-old oak trees, this lovely garden park is open to visitors looking for a quiet place to relax or take photos. Located in the heart of the historic district, Helen’s Garden is a delightful divergence from the hustle and bustle—a little piece of sweet serenity in the midst of a vibrant and energetic city. 

The garden welcomes guests with paved walkways meandering through the grounds, benches, well-maintained flowers, lush greenery, and enchanting fountains. Descriptive plaques placed around the park tell the story of the garden’s historical significance. The beautiful scenery makes Helen’s Garden a well-known spot for professional and amateur photographers throughout the Houston metro area. The park may also be reserved for weddings or small events.


Located under the oaks on FM 518 at the corner of East Main Street and Kansas, Helen’s Garden is a well-known hot spot for photographers all over the Houston area. The park can be reserved for weddings or small events.
