You can't believe your in the middle of a city with 4,000,000 people as you walk the three mile path surrounding the newly renovated municipal golf coarse, multiple tennis courts and houston one and only manicured Croquet courts.

Large, sweeping park with many options for runs, walks, or outdoor activities. Many baseball/softball fields, as well as open spaces. Ample parking, but does fill up during peak times.

Golf course is very good with some excellent holes and around the course is a running or walking track which is very nice and pleasant. A real plus for Houston and lovely green area.

This isn't Central Park or Retiro Park but it's nice. Great for a run. Or bike the trails. The golf course includes a driving range and a place for food. Also plenty of picnic space. Sometimes parking can still be a challenge though.
