  • We attended Earth Day and learned about birds and really enjoyed the Native American participation. It is nice to have activities and a clean area.

  • Nice park there are many things to do for everyone. They do have nice skating ring. Yo uh can do kayaking as well here. Also fountains for kids as well which are amazing, particularly in summer. They have horse carriage ride as well. Also there is street parking here but it's only free after 6 pm otherwise it costs 2$ an hour which is okay as it's downtown. We visited on Saturday.
  • One of the best parks to visit if your even downtown in Houston. This park has many attractions that are in or around it. It has some wonderful restaurants a dog park and some many more things one can explore while visiting this park! The building around it make it seem unreal that a park would be located here. The nature of the park seems intriguing and you totally forget you're in the city. Beautiful park you should visit with the family and friends on the weekends to have some fun.
