My husband and I live in Corpus Christi and this is one of our favorite places to stroll through on a nice Sunday afternoon. The older homes are beautiful and the area is quite peaceful unless there is a special event going on, yet as other reviewers pointed out the houses are not open to the public. We have never... More

We ended up just driving by because only one house was opened. You can view all the houses from the street, wish we could have gone inside.

I took my bridal portraits here a few years ago. The homes are lovely, but sadly there are very few to look at and as others have stated, they are rarely open. You need to call ahead of time to see which ones will be receiving guests. I've never been to any of the festivities that take place here. In... More

Heritage park is a collection of houses from the Corpus city limits, brought together into a centralized location, so that you can walk around and view them. The unfortunate part about this park, is that I have found that they are rarely open. It is not officially summer vacation yet, so perhaps this is why they are not open. Many... More

Interesting attraction, especially looking at the houses. Check for open hours. They started a paranormal trip which I've not attended. It's during the night. Check for hours.

This site is interesting in that Corpus Christi really doesn't have a lot of older homes (back from the 00's before the 1919 storm that almost wiped the city out) that have survived hurricanes! It's kinda nice to have these that survived all the years and storms! Annual Jazz Festival is usually held down around Heritage, and that's fun too!!!

Very pretty, but not much to do unless a festival is going on.

Seeing the houses in Heritage Park was most interesting, especially since they were all in one location. Signage is excellent. The docent was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. The grounds were in beautiful condition. We visited during the first week in September, 2008

The Corpus Christi heritage park was a wonderful place to visit. The houses give you the warm feeling of the old days. The heritage park gives you the idea of what houses in C.C use to be like in the past and it would be wonderful if more houses were restored like those in heritage park.
