Report Playground Equipment Concerns

The Buddy Carruth Playground for All Children offers fun for children of all abilities. Most equipment at the playground is handicap accessible, and the interactive water playground is a hit with kids in hot weather. The playground is within sight of the Texas Medical Center and is near the METRORail Line on Fannin Street, the newly-expanded Hermann Park mini-train, and all the attractions of Hermann Park. Built in 1995 for $1.3 million, development of the playground was planned and financed through the Houston Parks Board, Inc.

Playground Inspections

All HPARD playground equipment receives regular inspection and maintenance by the Safe Inspection Team, which makes sure that all play equipment and fall surfaces are in compliance with the safety guidelines established by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the American Society for Testing and Materials.

To report playground equipment concerns to the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, please contact the 311 Houston Service Center by phone at 713.837.0311 or by filling out an online 311 email form.

Please indicate the name of the park, relevant date, time, and type of problem.
