"Beware the Ship Channel"

The Clinton Park/ Tri-Community backs up to the Houston Ship Channel to the south. Like Harrisburg/ Manchester, this area could potentially be hazardous to health. The subdivision to the south of the neighborhood backs up to a system of train tracks and industrial shipping area run by the Port Authority. Not only does this make the area loud and dirty, but it is not exactly the most safe area for kids or people with families. Houses are very small, but affordable on any budget, though maintenance has become an issue. Basic comforts in some areas are somewhat luxurious here. The area is also relatively void of retail or shopping opportunities, so in order to do any of that, you will need to take 610 north or south, or I-10 to the north provides plenty of options for entertainment as well. While this area is unsafe in that it is so close to the ship channel and a predominately industrial area, I am an advocate for anything that gives kids an outlet, that gives them the opportunity to occupy their time with something they enjoy. Clinton Skate Park is centered right in the middle of the neighborhood and provides kids with an excellent opportunity for exercise, excitement and the ability to develop a passion. Not to mention it also gives them the opportunity to stay out of typical activities in the area. Like I said before, this is a great area for social activists or activists in general.
