"From the 1960s forward, generations of Richardsonites grew up with the Heights Parks’ space themed equipment – delighting in its globe of Saturn, and its towering four-level rocket (complete with fins, nosecone and steering wheel).

Rocket pays tribute to that progressive spirit, by playfully re-imagining the rocket’s two halves as a gateway. In the ringed sphere hovering overhead, a network of connectivity reflects the city’s ongoing technological heritage.

At the heart of an ever-evolving community in Richardson, Texas, Rocket serves as a symbol of constant transition: an opened doorway to our past, and an inviting portal to the city’s unwritten future."
