Well it is in the middle of downtown, and there is some history here, and it is an open square. But I was not all that impressed. Still nice to be in the middle of all the skyscrapers and to look around.

Dirty, smelly area with a lot of street attached hanging around. One guy clearly on tranq or something similar just stood on the corner…Not great when walking around with young kids. The feel of the place and the buildings were disappointing and it didn’t feel historic at all. The only redeeming quality was the incredible street art all around this area of the city, huge murals. The garden area was also nothing to write home about to be honest.

There was always something going on here, while we were in Houston, and we went to look at the Art Cars. It's a small park but nicely done, with history placards and a 911 memorial.

This is an historic square and has come along way over the years I have lived and been in downtown Houston. The square had plenty of history with plaques telling it all but it is nice with trees and benches and was really clean the day we were there.

There's not much to do in this random "park". There's a Niko Niko's with good food on the premises and some pretty neat bars around it, but really there's noooothing to do in this square.

Went as a joining place for a tour and found Lauren's memorial area, she was a passenger on the plane that crashed on 9/11, her parents created a beautiful memorial to her, her fellow passengers and all the others in the collapse of the towers.
Time to reflect in a peaceful place. Thankyou.

We found this eventually as the signage wasn’t great but were slightly disappointed as it wasn’t too large compared to other cities but then there is less history here but more if a reason to try and preserve it!

I came to this square to see the original houses of Houston but it was not worth it. Sam Houston park does a much better job of presenting them.

It is a must go in Houston. An old market square in well-designed downtown Houston. Tall buildings have good architectural designs.

Jim Parsons was totally entertaining in presenting wonderful fascinating information about the history of Market Square in downtown Houston. We walked around Market Square and then around the area. It was fun and interesting. I hope to go on other tours.
