Tranquility Park


Tranquility Park was built 30 years ago on top of a large underground parking garage to commemorate the 1969 NASA moon landing. Striking fountain stacks have become one of the well-known visual images of Houston, however complex structural, waterproofing and fountain mechanical issues pose challenges below the surface. The City of Houston recently retained White Oak Studio to lead a design team to assess conditions of the park and make master plan recommendations for the park’s future. The design team is preparing final design recommendations that will capture the spirit of the lunar mission and provide direction for future park reconstruction.
