  • Beautiful, family atmosphere, located in the middle of the city. A great place to get away from the hustle and bustle.of the big city and relax in a calm beautiful environment. The train ride, will give you a great overview of the entire park to give you an idea of where you want to wonder off to and explore.
  • The park is huge! There are trails from end to end a great place for running,I loved fishing here it's very calm and it's fun watching the ducks play! The parking during the weekends is horrible,I got to the park at 4 and it was hard to find a single empty parking spot. I recommend it to any pokemon go players there are a lot of stops great place to stock up on items. this was my first time going there and I loved the place it's really fun to fish there.
  • Hermann Park is a beautiful urban oasis. There are quality running trails, an obelisk with adjacent reflection pond, a natural area, amphitheatre, zoo, etc... there's something for almost everyone. This urban amenity is certainly something for Houstonians and visitors alike to enjoy. It's a great public space, but I do wish there was more and better night lighting and features.
  • The park is modern, very well maintained. It has gorgeous plants and gardens, sculptures and lots of animals! Squirrels, ducks, bunnies and multiple different birds. Great option for a run, a picnic or just to observe the stars! The park hosts 2 of the most important attractions of Houston: The Miller Outdoor Theatre and the Houston's Museum of Natural Science.
  • Beautiful Park for kids and adults. Tons of space for everyone. Walking trail is beautiful for jogging g or just enjoying the scenery. 3 playgrounds for the kids. Just loving it.
