  • Great inner city park! The zoo the museum of natural science are wonderful. Going to Miller Outdoor theater is free. This area is huge. A nice golf course. Different areas for just being in the park. All right in the middle of the museum district as well as the medical center. I have been visiting here since I was very young and have great memories of this area.
  • Beautiful park, clean , serene, u get to see ducks walking close by, u can sit on any bench and read a book, Love the Train Ride, Conductor and all the park staff in offices very friendly, recently the Kite festival was awesome. Enjoyed it. Parking is limited but somehow u get to have a spot either on road or in the parking lot. Metro train station is close by. There are a lot fun places near by to visit.
  • One of my favorite parks in Houston. Parking can be a challenge. The Zoo is here and the fabulous Miller Outdoor theater with its free programs. Check out their schedule online. Dog friendly at Miller and BYOB for performances.
  • Kite festival at the park was exciting and a day well spent with the family. They had food trucks and activities for kids. They had a marching band and live music. Got a little crowded latter in the day but the weather was good to fly. Really appreciate the police who were helping the distressed parents looking for their kids. And they found them so quickly.
  • Beautiful park. Lots of trails. Plenty of space to do what you like. There's a nice play ground and it's home to the Miller Outdoor Theater. The best park in Houston in my opinion
