When one thinks of the Apollo 11 moon mission, perhaps, the first words that come to mind are the ones transmitted by Neil Armstrong when he said, "Houston, Tranquility base here. The Eagle has landed." It is to honor this historic and landmark mission that the city's Parks and Recreation Department has created the Tranquility Park. Located in downtown
, this park lays surrounded by prominent city buildings, like the City Hall and the Bank of America Center, and is a vital community gathering point. The park, which features a landscape carved to resemble the craters and mounds of the surface of the moon, plays host to prominent events like the Children's Festival and Houston International Festival.
