Village on the Park is an independent living community in Houston's Steeplechase area.
For pace and endurance no hunter approaches the English thoroughbred; and for a bold man who "means going," a steeplechase horse is often the best animal that could be obtained, for when he has become too slow to win races "between the flags," he can always gallop much faster, and usually lasts much longer, than animals who have not his advantage of blood.
Race meetings are held here, and the steeplechase course is considered the finest in the colony.
Housing projects began to replace what was once the site of quality amusement park rides, and the final major park on the island - Steeplechase Park - closed in 1964.
Track & Field competition at all levels Paul running the steeplechase.
