Concession Stand at Colonial Park, West University PlaceIn 2010, the City of West University Place completed major renovations to two of its sports facilities.  This photo shows the newly-built concession stand at Colonial Park Pool (4130 Byron St.)

The concession stand at Colonial Park is run by the Edloe Street Café and Deli, which has long been a favorite “watering hole” in downtown West U.  Now, the most popular and kid-friendly menu items are available poolside as well.

Burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs and tacos are all on the menu, but what makes this concession stand unique is the delicious salads.  I especially recommend the Berry Salad, a light combination of greens, blue cheese, spiced pecans, pulled chicken and fresh strawberries, topped by a balsamic vinegar dressing.

And no trip to Colonial Park Pool is complete without a Cherry Icee!
