The Arlene Nichols Memorial Park is a 10 acre park located at 222 Raymac Street, Houston, Texas 77037 that opened March 2013. Amenities include a playground, swings, small covered pavilion, jogging/walking trail around the perimeter, two general purpose athletic fields along with picnic tables and benches. Mosaics on two park benches were completed by art students from Aldine Senior High.
The park is named after Arlene Nichols, a dedicated public servant, who worked for eighteen years for the office of State Representative – District #140. Arlene worked tirelessly with the community on issues such as water and sewer, public safety and education. She was instrumental in laying the foundation for this project by helping the District to obtain one of the initial grants that was used to build the park.
