    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
