Virginia Field Park, Calvert

Virginia Field Park in Calvert by Alexey Sergeev

Virginia Field Park, a gorgeous green space within the Historic District of Calvert, originated in 1868 as a donation for park space from the Houston and Texas Central Railroad.

The large red roofed pavilion and the 2 smaller gazebos were built in 1895.

In 1937, the large pavilion was named in honor of an admired landscaper, Mrs. Virginia Field, and carries her name to this day.
