  • I have to say this was my first visit to the Houston area and I would give anything if our state Alabama would have these awesome parks for families to visit. This is the greatest idea I have ever seen to get people out in the fresh air and doing family things together. We really enjoyed the event of the anniversary of the Apollo landing. It was very well planned and so glad that we happen to be there that weekend.
  • Pretty nice little park out in the middle of downtown. Good for a nice stroll if you just need to get out for some fresh air, with some nice sculptures and greenery all around. Saturdays seem to be lively, with food trucks parked around, and some activities set up around the small lakes. Also in walking distance from several hotels and other locations in the downtown area.
