I'm not sure that they want to be known for this. Houston has several Parks that rival NYC's Central Park. Notably Hermann Park and Memorial Park. But recently, in the evening, we went to the Theater Under the Stars which happens to be located in Hermann Park and it was impossible not to notice that people of all ages were... More

Great track for you to jog on. There's lots of homeless asking you for change so it's motivation to keep running. They usually can't keep up. Last week I saw one OD near the tunnel. Oh yea, pretty sure there are vampires out here at night. May just be crack heads though...

Hermann park is always a great place to stroll, have a picnic or get in a workout. Very large and offers many areas for enjoyment. The Japanese garden is beautiful as well.

We used to visit this place frequently till some time ago. There are a number of things you can do here. Visit zoo, a number of museums, parks, music festivals or just sit have a picnic in the woods. Well maintained by city of Houston.

Grew up going her and still love! Lots to do and huge park. Miller Outdoor Theater with great concerts and events on the regular. Great for families. Be sure to stay in well trafficked and well lit areas at night. Houstonians love this spot because it is in the center of everything and accessible to most things.

A good place to go when the temperatures start falling. In the middle of the summer, it's not exactly the best. Not the best spot for jogging in Houston either. Still: a good spot for the many lakes, the Japanese garden and the strange obelisks.

Nice place to walk, ride bikes, picnic with family and friends. It's also pet-friendly. It also has interesting art pieces to enjoy and interact with.

Walked into Japanese gardens which were nice. Monuments and reflecting pool look like cute copy of DC. Walked by Miller theater were they were doing a full rehearsal of Million Dollar Quartet and was able to sit and watch. Nice bonus to the day.

It is a beautiful park, but parking sometimes is hard to find. lots of homeless people, and that's makes me uncomfortable, would be excellent without the homeless people
