“Pause and momentarily relax”
Bell Park consists of 1.15 acres, a city block fronting on Montrose Boulevard. It is a favorite spot for Museum District walkers and for picnic lunches for nearby office workers. Once a vacant lot, the property was donated to the city by the Gramercy Company in the person of C.C. Bell, who had owned it since 1946. The deed dated October 31, 1967, states that it is donated and conveyed to the City of Houston “… for the purposes of providing a retreat for reflection and thought, to promote the happiness of the people of Houston, to add to the enjoyment of those who would pause and retreat momentarily from the increasing tension of modern and future society and to express forever Donor’s appreciation to the people of Houston for helping create a climate conducive to success ….” It goes on to state that it will be designated a public park permanently named Bell Park.
