Welcome to the Poe PTO Spark Park Page!

We are so happy you stopped by to visit!!!


Did you know that Poe Elementary’s outdoor campus is one of over 140 Spark Parks in the Houston area? Enter through the gates along South Blvd and you’ll find a wonderland of playgrounds, outdoor seating spaces, a soccer field and backstop, a granite track, basketball courts, blooming butterfly gardens and art work around every corner!  During the weekdays, it is home to over 850 pre-kindergarten through 5th grade students; after-school and during weekends, it is a cozy gathering space for Poe’s neighboring community.
