Busy park that many enjoy

great trail path with lots of people watching opportunities! It can get too busy where you have to off-road the path.

They've got playgrounds, fountains, walking trails, reflection pools, picnic tables, etc. a great place for a cup of coffee, a romantic walk or an afternoon with overactive kids.

Loved seeing Miller Theatre where we used to picnic and watch live performances when we were young and poor. Loved seeing the changes in the gardens, the Japanese gardens, watching families taking pix of their graduates and children running up the spiral pathway around the fountain/mountain. Parking was terrible on Saturday afternoon, but it was worth it anyway.

love the new train, landscaping, new park areas, water and picnic areas. Also, a great venue for flying kites--and a performance area with seating. Located near the Museum of Natural Science, Butterfly Museum, Zoo - lots to do!

just wanted an area to take the stroller with wife and baby. If was near the hotel were we stayed and didn't realize that there are oasis of peace in what can seem like a hectic city.

Hermann Park is truly beautiful, so much so that you may forget you're in the sprawling urban city of Houston. There are so many different areas of Hermann Park to explore. Personal favorites of mine are the reflecting pool and Japanese garden. The lake offers paddle boats for rent, which is definitely a fun activity. There are many playgrounds throughout... More

We love going here! Always something going on or you can find a quiet spot to just relax. It's one place in this big city where you can relax, walk, get away from the busy city, and just hang out with friends and family. Turn off your phones and feed some squirrels together!

Great walking paths, big trees and a relaxing place to unwind or have a picnic. Make sure you stop by the fountains and the lake.

Love taking the pup for the walk around the golf course and Centennial Gardens. Although I walk 2.5 miles, the pup does 2x that as he zig-zags a lot. Grounds are kept up nicely, there are several low spots that flood after a heavy rain. New area to do some stretching and conditioning with a people and pup water fountain.
