Market Square Park is a public park in Downtown Houston, Texas, United States It is bounded by Travis, Milam, Congress and Preston streets It has remained a geographic centerpiece of Downtown Houston since the arrival of the city's founders, John Kirby and Augustus Chapman Allen in 1836citation needed

The historic square is surrounded by 19th century architecture, housing a variety of businesses, entertainment venues, nightclubs and dining establishments Market Square is located directly between Allen's Landing and the Theater Districtcitation needed
