  • I can't give enough praise about this park! We recently moved to Houston and this is by far one of our favorite places to go! There is so much to do and is great for walking and seeing different sight...  more »
  • This is a very large park with lots of different environments to explore. (It is also right near the Art Museums, so you can mix indoor and outdoor cultures in the same visit.) There is a lovely Japan...  more »

  • Something for everyone here. A stroll through several gardens and a mini-forest. A lake with a huge fountain, ducks, paddle boats, and shimmering reflections of the sun. A playground with water sprayers to keep kids cool. A train ride that circles the park. Miller Outdoor Theatre and the huge hill, plus free performances at night. The Houston Zoo, Museum of Natural Science, Health Museum, and Children's Museum are steps away.
  • It is a great place to go exercise. There are trails where people can walk or go jogging. The restrooms are very spacious and clean ( behind the Miller theater). The gardens are accentuated by outstanding public pieces of art work. The landscaping is well designed and well kept. Children can enjoy feeding the ducks in the pond by the zoo. There is a Japanese Garden with an almost magical atmosphere that invites to meditate. During the spring this garden is adorned by a spectacular show of azaleas perfect for the background of a portrait picture. There are a wide variety of trees, ranging from pine trees to oak trees that form amazing lines which seem to reach out in the sun light and create a positive space against the clear blue sky. It is a romantic place where couples enjoy quiet walks holding hands and children splash under the water fountains. Native Texas grass and other wild flowers can be found here.
  • This park is located right next to botanical gardens (free to enter) which has a very photogenic fountain, the Houston Museum of Natural Science (which has a free admissions day), and the Houston Zoo (not free admissions but worth it). At Hermann park, there is a stage that has live performances that include plays and bands. The park itself has a very nice trail that goes around the park right by the lake. Many Houston events are also hosted here in the park such as the kite festival and the Japanese festival to name a few. The park is also monitored by security in golf carts and they're constantly on the watch. There are playgrounds for kids and benches to picnic. All in all the park is a fun place to hang out
  • Nice park has the zoo, museums, garden place, pretty lake and flowers, train and paddle boats and free entertainment by the hippy hill, as my parents called it in the 70's, just have to get the schedule. Cafe food was good and good price. There is a certain place by the big playground on that corner by the hospital I don't recommend if you are not urban and use to homeless people, just stay on the inside where everything is happening.
  • Love this park. It is in such a nice part of downtown. All of the museum's are within walking distance. Oh yeah and it's a good place to walk around. As soon as you exit the zoo were right there. Check out the railroad ride also.
