The park is long, narrow strip of mostly undeveloped green space laid out on an east/west axis between Parland and Funston Streets. The east end is bounded by N. New Braunfels and the Botanical Gardens and the west end is bounded by Broadway and Brackenridge Park.

By car, the neighborhood is 10 minutes from Downtown, Uptown, and major freeways.
Most of the homes in the neighborhood range in size from 1,000 sq ft (100 m2) to 2,000 sq ft (200 m2) and were constructed during the 1920s through the 1950s. Pre-WWII housing architecture consists primarily of bungalows built in styles of Mission, Four Square, California and Cottage Tudor. Post-WWII housing architecture consists mainly of Ranch-style dwellings. The neighborhood today has an eclectic mix of residents from all backgrounds and persuasions.
