Very expensive for fast food. $4./00. for one adult and two kids. lunch consisted of burgers and fries a salad and a fruit cup. The fruit cup literally had five watermelon cubes in it for $5.00. Not crowded they also had pizza, grab your sandwiches and bottled grab your own drinks.

There is a ton of residential high rise buildings going up around the park, king d of mirroring Central Park NYC in years tocome. HOTELS are near by along with a world class medical center and...

Visited on Easter Sunday. I have never seen so many people and cars in a park. There was a crawling line of cars to get into a lot that was full. No traffic assistance provided to move things along. Beginning of our 10 day Texas traffic horrors visit!

This park is just beautiful! There are areas for everyone, quiet spots, busy spots, a cute train running through it, beautiful fountains, gardens, lakes with boats, wildlife, art installations, picnic areas and miles of pathways. Beautiful spot to visit.

Beautiful place to visit and spend some leisure time (and money!), offering some of the best features about Houston. Great family events, free outdoor theater, paddle boats, train, Japanese garden, botanical/rose garden, duck ponds - all lovely!

As a long time resident of Houston, I can proudly say the Hermann Park is a must-see for residents and visitors alike. It is located in a prime area, surrounded by the thriving museum district, the beautiful Rice University campus and a bustling Texas Medical Center. Accessible by car, light rail or bus, this sprawling park has a golf course,... More

Hermann Park is a beautiful location to explore, there are several green spaces and artistic features to explore all over the park. The day we went there was a light drizzle outside but that didnt stop people from enjoying the park. There's space to picnic , peddle boat, and ride the train.
