Comments

History of Little Thicket Park Little Thicket Park, located at 1831 West 23rd Street, is a 10.6-acre slice of nature near the intersection of Ella Boulevard and the North Loop. The City acquired the original tract in 1957 for $1.00 from Hugh January and Leslie L. Appelt. The men declined to have their names given to the park, so it was named Helberg Park after the old Helberg estate, which it was carved from.It backed up to White Oak Bayou, which at that time was a pristine wilderness. Flood control issues caused the bayou to be rerouted into another channel and lined with concrete in 1957. Fortunately, the streambed at Helberg Park was left alone. An additional tract was bought from Appelt in 1970 and added to the park.
