The play areas are nice and clean, and the water play area is sSO MUCH FUN, and there's different areas for different age groups.;; LUV IT! The train ride is nice. My LO really enjoyed it. Perfect place to sit by the pond and relax if you like as well.

The train next to the Houston Zoo is a great activity for kids of all ages and is 18 minutes long. My kids love this and I can't say enough good things about it. If you're into running, the trail around the park is a gravel/dirt trail and so much better on your knees and the scenery is beautiful!

We spent half an hour in this park. There were people walking, having picnic, reading books, children riding in a train all around the park, ducks, turtles, squirrels, blue jays, crows, fish and so on. This is a big park with amenities and it is right by the museum district which is a very nice neighborhood. Perfect place to rest... More

This park is really pretty. From the Japanese gardens to the lake and the Zoo - very nice landscape. If you are with children, the playgrounds and the waterpark are also amazing. Highly recommended!

Train rides, peddle boat rentals, splash pad, playground, stick house maze, access to zoo/museum and wildlife (turtles,frogs,fish,birds). Something for everyone at Hermann Park. We recently visited and noticed the monument fountains to be not funtioning anymore- bummer since the kids prefer playing in these other than the splash pad behind the zoo. Beware- the southwest corner of the park is... More

Picnic, walk, train ride and free concerts at night. And a great zoo! A great relax after the big city. There is lots of parking around, you just need to read the signs. There is a new lot off of Hermann Drive.

The Hermann Park is pretty big so do expect quite a bit of walking. The reflection pool and the Japanese Garden are my favourite parts of the park.
