LOCATION:
South park is located on southside of Houston. Its borders are Loop 610 on the North, Sims Bayou on the South, Mykawa Road on the east and local streets that ziz-zag west of Martin Luther King Boulevard.

COMMUNITY DESCRIPTON AND HISTORY:
South Park is a series of tract-home subdivisions developed along South Park Boulevard during the 1950s. The oldest subdivision consists of small frame homes on streets named for World War II battles that the original homebuyers, many of whom were returning veterans, knew from personal experience. Throughout the area, many small and well-maintained homes remain; however, they are often adjacent to deteriorating properties or vacant lots. Many homes adjacent to the main thoroughfare, now called Martin Luther King Boulevard, have been converted to various commercial uses.
