Mickey Leland Memorial Park was dedicated to the public to honor the late congressman on November 10, 2000. The memorial is located in northeast Houston on the site of the first office occupied by Leland after he was elected to the Texas State Legislature in 1972. The Leland Memorial Park is a moving collection of art, green space and history consisting of an obelisk, sculptures, story walls and an exedra that blend to commemorate the benevolent, humane, community service spirit of one of the all-time favorite sons of the people of Houston.
