  • Best time of the year, possibly Oct - April time frame, the rest would be super hot. Great place to walk around and enjoy the scenery with the rest of the vicinity of Hermann Park and surrounding. Cou...  more »
  • Great place for a walk but the restrooms are horrible and not air-conditioned. Highly recommend you hold it if you can.  more »

  • Beautiful garden in Houston. I loved the pond and the ducks. It's obviously a well-known picturesque location - someone was taking maternity photos when I was there. Good place for a walk with your dog, or a romantic walk, or just a regular walk (whatever mood you're in) The garden house or whatever it's called is a fake - just a couple of walls and paint put in place to complete the picture. There's a couple of places that are dry that obviously should have had water - idk if that's a cost saving measure or that they just couldn't be bothered. I'm not quite sure how authentic it is for a Japanese garden since I've never been to one before, but I do know that it's a beautiful garden.
  • Not as nice, scenic, or as large as I was expecting. There wasn’t much Japanese about the garden minus some bamboo and fish. The garden is okay; not worth going out of the way for. There are other more scenic areas in Houston to see. Two stars because the garden is free.
