Finnigan Park is named after Annette Finnigan, who donated the land for the park in order to give Black residents of Houston a new greenspace. The Finnigan Park Project, a partnership between Harris County Precinct One, the City of Houston, and HISD, was established to create educational, social, and recreational opportunities for residents. This park has baseball fields, tennis and basketball courts, a pool, and more! Finnigan Park is also home to the Youth Education Town (YET), which the NFL donated funds toward construction after the 2004 Super Bowl in Houston.
