Heritage Park is Corpus Christi's historic park which hosts and supports many art and cultural activities, as well as a variety of community events throughout the year. Come and step back in time at this historic cultural center where several Victorian-style homes now stand. The park is overseen by the Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department.
HISTORIC & BEAUTIFUL

Each home pays tribute to the area’s ethnic and cultural diversity.
