  • Enjoy a beautiful walk through Hermann Park and see the true spirit of Houston. Read up on your history because Hermann park has more to offer then the ey can see. 
  • Walked through the Japanese gardens and so some college students playing quibich. That was interesting. Places to buy drinks and food and even a resteraunt. Parking gets hard to find, so go early. 
  • We lived 8 blocks from the park for a year before we ventured over there because we got a dog, and then we were so bummed that we had not been over sooner! The park is beautiful and is very large righ...  read more »
  • Massive park the the museum district. This place has paddle boats, a train, zoo, golf course and a jogging path (I'm sure I'm still missing something too). This is a great place to take the family or a day date.
  • These beautiful grounds are a landmark trait of this city. Here, on special occasions, you can enjoy a classic movie at The Miller Outdoor Theatre. I watched The Wizard of Oz with the family of a close friend of mine. The reflection pool is a place of wonderment, where you can ponder your own thoughts in general serenity. If you're feeling energetic, a nice walk through the shaded areas will bring you a sense of calm. I recommend this location as a tourist attraction or a family outing. Bring your children, bring your loved ones, make memories, and love. P.S. skip the restaurants though. Bringing your own food from wherever is much more worth it. :)
  • Love it. They have gotten a lot better about getting the trash picked up and I love the Ducks just saw one with 9 ducklings. Lots of paths and trees. Great for a general outing or to waste time if you are skipping the zoo
  • This is Houston's equivalent to NY's Central Park. You have some gorgeous areas such as the Japanese gardens, Monuments, and the Miller outdoor theatre. This place always has lots of people and is nice for a walk. One of my favorite places in Houston for a nice relaxing walk, to enjoy the city and its people.
  • What a wonderful place!! I went to participate in March4BernieUSA and had a wonderful time! I ended up walking around 5 miles and there was so much to see! A train ride, a pond with paddle boats, pavilions, splash pad, plus the zoo is conveniently located within. I'll definitely be going back!
