Nice time but there are homeless people around

We enjoyed the train ride but the playground area was full with homeless people so we just walked around the park with the kids.

Such a nice place with plenty of things to do. I usually walk through the Japanese Garden each time I visit. One day we rode the paddle boats (prepare to do a little work! And choose a cool day to do it, because in summertime this would be torture). The train ride is a nice treat, especially if you have... More

Beautiful park right here in our city. Lots of places to walk, sculptures, flowers, fountains, etc. Well worth a day here.

Large park with lots of areas to sit and watch the people and day go buy. Very quiet on weekdays and full of a diverse audience on weekends. Enjoyed soaking in the sun, watching the ducks compete with the paddle oats, and seeing families frolic in the park.

After having lunch at Barnaby's, we drove to the nearby park with our grand baby in a stroller. What a beautiful park! It has flowers, mostly roses, garden vegetables and water flowing from a pyramid like mound. A beautiful oriental pagoda also adorns the park. Our daughter said a zoo is nearby too, great!

Atmosphere is very serine. Great thinking place to read a book or for some family fun. The water spouts are my kids favorite. Take a loaf of bread... all kinds of animals will come out to greet you. Feel like Snow White every time I go to this park.

A great place for a run. Crushed gravel trail, beautiful trees cover the trail with shade. A really pretty run near the zoo, museums, and park.

While in Houston for a short visit, we stayed at Hotel ZaZa which is right around the corner from this park. It's beautiful, we walked in the gardens and around the trail that circles the nearby golf course! It's a great place to get some exercise and see some natural beauty!

If you are into amazing parks well Hermann Park is one of them. I really enjoyed myself at this park. I went on a little boat on the lake and walk about. But I will say this make bring your lunch cause you might not want to leave for it.
