While your man plays golf you and the kids can watch ducks, paddle out on the lake, run around the concentric Centurian gardens, look for the Chinese pagoda, go to the nearby zoo and take the train that goes through the park. There's a hill that is fun to run down. It is the only hill in Houston. There is... More

Hermann Park has a lot to offer. It is adjacent to the Houston Zoo and the Houston Museum of Natural Science. There are lots of picnic areas, a train with several stops around the park, a man made lake with paddle boats for rent, a playground with splash pads, and a reflection pool. Two wonderful spots in the park are... More

Large open spaces, run till you can't, paddle boating, and a mini-train! What more do you need to wear the kids out? Grass was neatly cut, was clean, lakes were nice, FREE but small charge for train & boats. Even nice on a warm day. Parking was a bit awkward as it is shared with the zoo, Miller outdoor theatre,...

This is an interesting park experience, lots of different areas to spend time in, from the Japanese gardens, to paddle-boating on the lake, to scaling the Mount or walking in the rose gardens. Fun place to spend a weekend afternoon.

Very nice park in middle of urban area. Train and peddle boats are awesome. Train is 3.50 each but if you go on week day you can get an all day pass for 7.00 each. The peddle boats are 10.00 for 30 minutes for up to 4 people. Take some bread to fed the ducks for added fun. The japenese... More

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.

This park has something for everyone. It has gardens, A Natural History museum, a golf course, the Miller Outdoor Theatre, a small lake and the Houston Zoo. It is all set in a lovely landscaped green space complete with fountains and a statue of Sam Houston. It is across the street from Rice University and the Houston Medical Center. This... More

Wow what a lovely park. The park is located about 2 minutes walk from the museum of natural arts. 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
