How much do you know about our little park located on the corner of (appropriately) Park Lane and Idylwood Drive? (The Park’s borders are actually Idylwood Drive, Park Lane and MacGregor Way.
I’ve Googled for the answer to my next question but would welcome input from any Idylwood residents who may know the answer: Just exactly who is (was?) R.F. “Bob” Spurlock?
In 202, Idylwood resident RENI was instrumental in obtaining new playground equipment for the little park, for which she received recognition by the City of Houston.

In 2008, the Houston Parks Board completed Spurlock Park renovations including a 350-foot trail extension to a newly acquired addition to the park, new handicap ramps, lighting enhancement, site beautification, and clean-up of a wooded drainage swale. The park received its wonderful expansion as a result of the acquisition of a former residential lot through the FEMA buyout program.
Many thanks to the following people and organizations for helping maintain and beautify our little corner of heaven:
- Amegy Bank
- John P. McGovern Foundation
- Robert W. & Pearl Wallis Knox Foundation
- The Congregation of the Sisters of Charity
