We’ve all had at least one person in our lives who has changed it for the better and been a positive influence. So who’s that one mentor you remember? On today’s edition of Houston Matters, we hear stories of mentors and those they’ve mentored.

Then, a study by the Trust for Public Land rates Houston first among the nation’s 10 most populous cities in total acreage of parkland, and third only behind San Diego and Dallas in park acreage per capita. We explore what makes Houston’s roughly 38,000 thousand acres of green space unique, the programs they offer and the challenges of creating and preserving green space in a city that continues to grow.

And we examine what went wrong in the Rockets’ Game 1 playoff loss to Portland with CultureMap Houston columnist MK Bower.
