We visited Sam Houston park during our time in Houston and it was a nice green space in the middle of the city. There are numerous historic houses in the park which are interesting to look at, and there are a few small ponds with statues and water features. It is a nice place to come for an hour or so when the weather is nice, and it's free to go to. There is also a visitor centre which provides some information about the history of the houses and the park. Overall, I would recommend visiting if you're exploring Houston city as it is centrally located and it's a nice green space to have a stroll.

We visited Sam Houston Park for the Hot Chocolate Run 15k. It is a beautiful park and has lots of historic buildings on the grounds. We found ample pay parking nearby, but little to no free parking. We were there on a beautiful weekend day in February!

Green park with houses of different architectural styles in the middle of downtown Houston. It is amazing that such places exist in the middle of busy cities.

This park is in downtown Houston and very close to everything else. It is very strange to see the contrast between the old buildings that would be original to Houston and the skyscrapers of downtown. It's a good place for a walk in the evening, or to spend a longer time when the historical society is open.

Walking this park you get the feeling you’re back in time or in a small town somewhere. Then you look up and see skyscrapers all around you. The differences between the old and new is truly staggering. As we wandered around we came across the historical group who do tours. We spent an hour and a half with a lady who was both passionate and knowledgeable about the grounds and buildings. Our only comment is that it probably could have been fitted into an hour.
