About Menil Park

Lined with early-20th-century bungalows and shaded by live oak trees, the 30-acre campus is integral to the Menil aesthetic and experience. Tucked away within a bustling city, the Menil’s buildings and green spaces are a source of civic energy and domestic tranquility. Museum visitors from around the globe have likened the Menil neighborhood to an urban oasis.

From the sturdiest oak tree in Menil Park hangs a bright red swing, though it is more than just that: created as an “urban intervention” by a University of Texas architecture student, it is one of many in the globe-spanning Red Swing Project.
