Nice park with lake and live music right in Downtown Houston. I thought it was also very very clean for a downtown park. I didn't appreciate almost getting hit by a teenager with a scooter though

Nice to have a park in the middle of so many skyscrapers. The park does break up the high density and it is well used by the crowds around. Good for picnics.

We grabbed dinner at the Phonecia Specialty Market and then spent the evening at this beautiful city park. The kids loved the playground and splash pad area and there were plenty of tables and chairs for adults to relax. After playing we also enjoyed live music at the stage! Bathrooms available. Great city gem!

I stumbled upon this place while riding a bike throughout Houston, TX. It was pretty packed with people from diverse backgrounds. Live music was playing and people were dancing. Others were picnicking and/or playing outdoor games. The park was not as large as I hoped it to be. However, still a great, relaxing time. There's food galore, either from venders in the park or near by businesses.

We stopped in here one evening to see the Art Cars that were displayed around the park. It's a very cool space.

Luckily I found street parking along the street facing the Hilton hotel.

This was a large downtown park that the city acquired from the convention center.

It was at least 10 acres and contained a lot of features that I found to be attractive.

Artwork and flower gardens
Large open spaces to lay a blanket out and enjoy the weather
Restaurants and bars
Pond and fountain
Children’s play area
Small hills to get a higher perspective
Surrounded by skyscrapers for nice backdrop to your photos
outdoor aerobic classes
Quiet and seemed safe
Lots of seating scattered around

Great place for the boys; 6&4 to run wild! Nice little playground and lots of space to run. This is a well thought out place! As we were playing, running and just hanging out, it kept me thinking how well this area was planned. Great stop as we explored Houston!

We were staying downtown for the Houston Marathon and strolled over to Discovery Green from our nearby hotel. The park is pretty, a nice urban green space located near the GRB Convention Center. There's some cool artwork, huge live oak trees, meandering paths, a playground with equipment for kids to play on and green hills they can slide down. We enjoyed strolling through the Solstice art exhibit with its illuminated light panels. There's always something new to see and do here. Currently they have outdoor ice skating for the winter months. They also offer things like yoga, tai chi, and movie nights; check their website for all the latest events. The park is clean and also has a couple of restaurants where you can dine. Really nice to have this urban oasis in the middle of downtown. Worth a visit if you're staying in the area.
