The park is a short walk from my home. I enjoy walking through the park. There are many paved trails, a golf course, Miller Outdoor Theater, The Houston Zoo, a mini-train, cafe, paddle boats, playgrounds, and more to enjoy.

The park is really green and clean and lots of people jog around the park or just roll from the top of the green hill to the bottom. The highlight of this park is the lovely red train that goes around... More

We loved the park. We decided to check out downtown Houston and took the metro to this park. They was a little playground that my son loved. We took a train ride around the park. There is a little cafe and picnic areas with pedal boats. The zoo is right there as well which has free entrance on the first... More

Located In the middle of Houston, museum district. It's very nice park. Few statues including Sam Houston and Confucius. Well landscaped with nice flowers and trees. Two fountains are very relaxing. Must see place in Houston.

We found a beautiful Japanese garden in the center of the Hermann park. A beautiful little meditation space for peaceful walk. Easy walking. Peace in the middle of the medical central region of Houston.
