  • It is a very nice family Park, I visited with my spouse, my two year old son, my mother and my grandmother and all we loved it. It has trails for walking, games for the kids, tables and parking is easy while it is in the center of the city. Sure I'll be back. Wonderful plan and very economical.

  • I visit this park at least twice a year. The park in general looks always well maintained. The only head ache about this park is to find a parking spot, other than that it looks beautiful at nights. I...  more »
  • I believe it's about 12 acres of green space, two restaurants and plenty of activities scheduled throughout any given week. There are theater performances, music performances, markets, activities for ...  more »

  • I love this park! It is small in comparison with other parks that we have in Houston. Major flaw is finding parking. They do have a schedule for upcoming events. It is kid and pet friendly. They also have a skating rink during the winter and they turn on the fountains during the warmer months. In addition, there are food options on the premises and restrooms.
  • This is such a cool park! It's owned and maintained by a foundation setup to take care of the park through donations. They host art installations and have lots of fun stuff to do and see. There's also a concert area with a graded hill for seating. There's even an ice rink...if you can believe it!!
  • Discovery Green is always a great place to visit with the kids. Open spaces, fun playgrounds, water attractions, and kid-friendly events make this one of our favorite downtown destinations. The only downside is that parking can be tough at times, especially during events! But that's true of any place downtown. All in all it's worth that small hassle and we have a blast every time we visit.
  • A little oasis of green space preserved in the downtown area of Houston- just across from George R. Brown Convention Center. Has just about everything you need right there in the area. The Hilton & Marriott have really large properties that border the park- along with several other hotels, & a shopping mall. There is a nice stage which hosts free concerts every Thursday during the Spring & Summer- and also a restaurant & bar adjoining the stage. Really great place for a family outing on a nice day. Surely worth a visit.
  • Innovative and delightful family friendly. Staff always keep everything clean and tidy. The special programs such as the public art, music series, yoga/Zumba/exercise classes, young writers/poet slam, dancing are all high quality and encourage interactive participation. And the price is also outstanding - FREE! One of the best parks in the USA.
