  • Good place to take a walk. The fountains are now working again. It is next to city hall and the Sam houston historical park -- string them together for a good stroll.  more »
  • From the other reviews, it sounds like this park has gone through some very scary times. Yet when we were there, it seemed fine and safe. We were there early on a Sunday morning, so the whole area was...  more »
  • Do not let the negative reviews scare you away. My friend and I came across this park when exploring downtown Houston and thought it was very neat. The fountains were running and I was very glad to ha...  more »

  • This was my first visit here and I found it to be very calm and beautiful. I didn't see any homeless people and it seemed very clean. There's seating right by the water and there were people having a picnic. The only reason I gave it a 4 star and not 5 is because my husband said some parts smelt like horse manure and stale urine. I didn't agree. :)
  • Well manicured lawn, trees, landscaping. Clean and well kept. Water wall is pretty cool. Had low expectations, looking for somewhere unique to take out of town guests. Spent half hour walking and enjoying the large, encompassing sound inside the fountain. Worth a one-time visit if in the area.
  • The setting is indeed tranquil. It's pretty in some areas of the park, but in other areas it looks dated and unkempt. If you happen to be in the area, take a minute to check it out. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this.
  • Thu 06 29 2017 Lovely water, tables to eat lunch, benches & a shortcut to the central library. Next to green line Magnolia Park & purple line Palm Center.
  • Good name for tranquil space on West side of downtown Houston. Bordering City Hall & the theater district. Calming fountains, paths, green spaces. On street parking, or park in the garages underneath.

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.
