  • It was the arboritum in memorial park. It is truly a great place for adults and kids and its free! All kinds of beautiful walking trails! You can take your dog also. The inside discovery area was very interactive for kids and we spent two hrs in there alone. We got to play with real snails.
  • As if the park isn't BIG already...they are adding to it. My sole purpose for visits is to run the trail. So if you're looking for a great exercise route, 1 lap around it is approx. 3miles. You can always count on others to be out here any time of the day. Bug repellent may be needed bc some parts are woody and heck it's Houston. Dog owner? Dogs are totally a normal site to see but be kind and leash up the pup. Enjoy!
  • Excited to explore this park more. This is one of the major parks inside the 610 loop. For people visiting the city, I would recommend Buffalo Bayou Park and Herman Park as first stops over this, as they are more scenic. Great big city park for locals to enjoy 4/17/17 UPDATE: have now explored this park a bit more. It is absolutely huge. There are many beautiful trails through the woods here that make you feel like you are out of the city (albeit with slight sound of the freeway). If you need to escape from the city bustle but don't want to go far, this park is great. I still wouldn't tell tourists to go here over other major/manicured parks in the city, buy it is a gem for those who live here.
  • Love running here or taking visiting friends here for a 3 mile walk around. Parking can get tough but there's always a spot, just have to search a little. They offer all types of running, hiking, volleyball, mountain bike trails and on. Nice place in the busy concrete city.
  • I love this park!! Nice trails, nice arboretum, nice 3 mi jogging loop. Large old trees, plenty of shade. Something for everyone here.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
