Huge stage beautifully lit for night time concert, with abundant seating at the foot of a green expanse of hillside lawn for additional picnic and family fun. Great sound tech offers clarity that resound# thru the park and environs.

One of the best things about Houston is Miller Outdoor. Parking is much better now. I love sitting on the lawn with a picnic dinner and my kids. It gets crowded so go early and let them roll down the hill !
