This park was really a treat - there were only good vibes and it was such a nice location. I took a cab there so there wasn't much foot traffic even though there was a game playing at the stadium nearby. There's music in the...More

I have visited Discovery Green plenty of times! It's truly the only park within Downtown Houston that's centrally located and great for a quick walk, outdoor lunch, and photo-ops. Each season, there's new art exhibits and free events going on! So, you might spot something...More

We had no kids, but it certainly looked like all those who were there were having a wonderful time. Lots of water - necessary for a Houston summer.

A green space downtown where you can let your kids run under spraying fountains and enjoy some green space in Downtown Houston. Next to the Convention Center and a couple of blocks from Minute Maid Ball Park.
