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.

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.
