Established in 1989 along the banks of Buffalo Bayou, the 22.5acre park was established in 1986 to commemorate the 150 year anniversary of the founding of the city of Houston and of the Republic of Texas. Built in two phases, the 2.2acre entrance to the park and a 10.4acre site that flanks Buffalo Bayou as it flows past Wortham Theater Center and the northern section of the Houston Theater District was completed in August 1989. The 8.2acre second phase was completed in May 1998, ending the $19 million project that took 14 years to complete.The park features "Seven Wonders", a set of seven pillars illuminated from within by Houston native Mel Chin and several sculptures titled "The Big Bubble", "Site Seeing" and "Sounds from the Past", by artist Dean Ruck, who also lives and works in Houston.
