League Park

512 2nd St, League City, TX

One of League City’s crowning jewels, League Park was donated by J.C. League—the city's namesake—more than 100 years ago, and continues to be a gathering place for events throughout the year. Its stunning gazebo is a local landmark. League City's Visitor Center and Soulfreak Railroad Cafe is located in the historic Railroad Section House in the park near the playground. The park features two murals, a bronze sculpture of JC League, a railroad conductor sculpture, and a large Boundless Playground, designed to be inclusive for children with disabilities.

League Park was established in 1895. League's improvements to the site included oak trees for the landscaping and construction of a two-story bandstand, which was later rebuilt after the Great Storm of 1900. For many years League Park served as the center of the community's political, cultural, and recreational interests. Activities here included campaign speeches, medicine shows, revivals, and traveling shows. In the summers the League City Band held concerts while local ladies sold ice cream from the lower floor of the bandstand. During World War I League Park was the scene of Red Cross rallies and activities. In 1976 due to disrepair, residents funded a new bandstand. See Texas Historical Marker onsite.
