    Discovery Green is a nice park in the middle of Downtown Houston. There is a nice large pond to sit around and fountains to run around in. Unfortunately the view isn't awesome now with a ton of ugly

    Beautiful park close to Minute Maid, BBVA, Toyota Ctr & Convention Ctr. Flea Market every 3rd Saturday, but it's small. Live music quite often. Cute restaurants on site. Lots of play space for kiddos.

    Perfect spot for a picnic date. Get some craves cupcakes, wine or make a spiked punch, get some finger food (wraps or cute sandwiches) bring a spread or chair and attend a movie on the lawn

    This is a very beautiful and exciting park for the whole family. Be sure to check out the flea market on Saturdays, and bring extra cash for parking and vendors that sell summer treats.

    The $5 kayak around kinder lake is a great place for kids to learn. Also, check out the listening vessels behind The Grove. Needs more/better food options for families.

    Discovery Green is a phenomenal place to see concerts. The setting is beautiful in the middle of downtown, but also spacial, which makes for not a bad picnic, either.

    This place is simply amazing. Great views of the buildings, ice skating, the smell of a hot coffee, and nature is something you must watch.

    Parking is always a bear. If you can parallel park, head directly north a couple of blocks...there is usually street parking just a short walk away.

    Truly appreciate the Ambassadors that monitor the play area. The over zealous older kids can no longer take over the little kid area!

    If you have something important to tell a friend, take them to the listening shells and have an intimate long distance discussion via sculpture.
