Unveiling an Urban Prairie and Park at NHH Reed

Feb 22, 2024

In fall 2023, New Hope Housing, alongside the City of Houston Mayor's Office and community leaders, celebrated the grand opening of the Urban Prairie and Reed Park Resiliency Project in the Sunnyside neighborhood. The new amenities are located on the Cornerstone Community Campus of New Hope Housing Reed and Star of Hope Mission.

The Prairie and Park offer a verdant ecosystem for the surrounding community, providing families in the Reed neighborhood with opportunities to engage in STEM and nature-based activities. The features include:

  • A Paved Walking Path 
  • Benches
  • A Butterfly / Pollinator Garden
  • A Vegetable Garden
  • An Earthworm Farm
  • Water Marsh
  • A Sustainable Compost Bin
  • And More

We celebrated the new amenities with a seed spreading along the Urban Prairie, marking the start of our journey towards a greener, more resilient future in the Sunnyside community.
