In a jungle of Highways and skyscrapers this is a beautiful place to escape and soak up the green space.

We rented bikes from B-Cycle and rode around the park. There are spectacular gardens, a free outdoor theater and plenty of walking/biking paths.

We were visiting Rice University for the weekend, and found this park close by. Nice trails, close to the Natural Museum of Science, Museum of Fine Arts, the Houston Zoo....lots to do and see for an afternoon or evening away.

We recently saw "Footloose" at Miller Outdoor Theater, and we loved it! Our friends met us there for a picnic on the hill, and as the sun went down, we enjoyed the musical free or charge. This is one of Houston's great assets, and there is usually a concert or play to enjoy. Well worth the visit!

This is the place for family to enjoy a great outdoor activity. You can picnic, play balls, fly a kite, rent peddle boat. Young kids love the train goes around the park. And it's in walking distance to the Houston Zoo, Children's museum, science museum, garden. It's a must visit place if you are tourist or the locals.

If I lived in/near Houston, I would enjoy this park on a regular basis. There is so much space and so many different activities happening. I especially loved the train.

It is a very nice park just in front of the Museum of Natural Science and the Planetarium. Great for walking, biking, boating, feeding the ducks, for your children to play or just to relax
