HOUSTON – The City of Houston on Saturday will unveil the Alief Neighborhood Center and Park, a new multipurpose facility situated off Bellaire Boulevard and Kirkwood in southwest Houston that offers the services of the recreation center it replaces, and also functions as a public library, a senior center, and a Women, Infant, and Child Clinic.

The Alief Neighborhood Center is the first City of Houston facility designed to offer public services from three of its departments: Health and Human Services, Parks and Recreation, and the library.

The sleek, 70,000-square-foot facility houses the Women, Infant, and Child Clinic on the first floor and the relocated Hennington-Alief Regional Library on the second floor.

The 38-acre renovated park features a public pool, playground, skatepark, baseball diamond, soccer fields, walking paths, and tennis and basketball courts.

Construction on the multi-use facility began in 2020.

A grand opening event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the new community center, located at 11903 Bellaire Blvd.

“Houston Newsmakers” host Khambrel Marshall discussed the new facility with District F Councilmember Tiffany Thomas in December. Watch the full interview below.
