A street with many restored historic homes. We have driven through this area many times over many years on the way to activities at the Selena auditorium. I have never seen any activities at any of the homes. The homes seem to be closed with nobody around them. I have heard that some times there are activities at these homes.... More

This a a great idea that more cities should think about. Many historical homes and homes of influential residents have been relocated to this park. Organizations then adopt these old homes and restore them to useable structures instead of hangouts for homeless and drug dealers which many were prior to being moved to Heritage Park. As most have noted the... More

A gathering place in Corpus Christ. Many old original homes that have been restored, most of which preceded the killer storm of 1919. Nice walk through the gardens and during the festivals (of which there are many), a central location for activity.

I've attended a couple of summer evening Municipal Band concerts at Heritage Park. The atmosphere was magic...music wonderful and free. The yard in front of the Galvan House was perfect and sheltered from the wind. I hope the City repeats the series again in 2015. I heartily recommend any resident or visitor NOT miss this wonderful community offering and I... More

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...

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.
