Arthur Storey Park in Houston, Texas, has a special place for practitioners of Tai Chi to go to practice. The Arthur Storey Park Tai Chi Court is located in a beautiful setting, with amenities such as picnic pavilions and bird watching activities.
The serene and beautiful setting of the park has been used for years by people to practice Tai Chi, and in January 2005, the local parks board gave the go ahead to build this dedicated space for Tai Chi practice.
The platform is a round, 50-foot wide, elevated concrete slab that can easily accommodate 20 or more people practicing Tai Chi at a time. It features a black and white Yin Yang symbol in a red circle, and has eight granite blocks set around the outside edge which represent the eight major points of the compass.
