When I was a kid we called this hippy hill. Beautiful grass hill overlooking the stage (amphitheater). I saw my first concert here with my Mom (when she was cool ;-) Peter Frampton! Kite contests and rolling down the hill. Get a 4 for 1. Close to Zoo, Japanese gardens and museum of natural science. Makes me feel like a... More

The thing I love the most about this place is that you can pay for tickets to watch plays, musical performances and many other attractions but you can also just bring a blanket and have a picnic for free on the hills right in front of it. There's a nice park around with barbecue areas and they even have festivities... More

This is a must go to place for everyone in Houston. I had my first date with my husband here so I love this place. Since then we have gone several times to see different kinds of shows with our kids.

My family and I went for a walk in the park, only to come across an awesome concert at this location. It has great sound and visuals from all locations. It was nice to see all of the people with there blankets enjoying the fresh air that night. We were able to see a Rolling Stones Tribute band and they... More

One of my family's most favorite places to go for any show they are having. So many free performances to see and even the paid ones are very reasonable. Chair seating is great but if you like a little more leg room, bring your blankets and/or chairs to sit on the hill. There are people who bring pop up tables... More

Imagine being able to see the symphony, ballet, opera, modern dance, acrobats, popular broadway musicals, classic movies and a varied selection of live music tastes. Now imagine all of them are FREE. Plus you don't have to pay $6 for sodas or $12 for beer/wine. You can bring your own food and drinks! Get there early at least an hour... More

Was able to see "Hairspray " this summer. Wonderful musical, excellent venue. That a city as large as Houston can offer free cultural events is a wonderful thing. A must see and do every season.

The Miller Outdoor Theater offers so many cultural options to see & experience. Performance change every year. Best part is it's free! Bring your dinner, drinks, a game and have a picnic on the lawn with friends and family. Both before and during the show. Great date local.

Every time I attend a show here it's so enjoyable that I vow to go more often! The entertainment runs the gamut from rock to Shakespeare and everything in between and it's always FREE!

A great place to watch a movie, a play, or a symphony... there is always something showing at the theatre. If you want to sit in theatre type chairs you sometimes have to pay a small fee... otherwise there are areas for picnic blankets, or chairs that you can bring yourself. You can bring food, your dog, your kids, beer,... More
