“Lovely park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Really nice, well kept park.
Good for walking and getting away from it all in Houston.
Reminds me of the parks in London, which I love also.

“My favorite running spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

I have been running around Hermann Park and the Houston Zoo for about five years, and it just keeps getting better. The running (walking) trails are gravel (not concrete/asphalt) and have recently been completely reconstructed - what a huge improvement! When not running, there are lots of kid-friendly playgrounds and everyone-friendly gardens and duck-feeding opportunities.

Near the Houston Zoo, the park is worth a stroll. There are fun activities, pretty scenery and opportunities for wholesome family fun.

“Read my Children's Museum along with this one...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

In the subject of keeping your kids occupied while in Houston, Hermann Park, next to the Zoo is a good option. It may actually take 2 days to close the circuit, first day, Children's Museum in morning, lunch, Imax in afternoon. Next day, go to Zoo in the morning, lunch and Herman Park in afternoon. They will sleep like babies at night. At Herman I love to roll down the grass dunes and kids do too. Play in the water fountain area, or watch a free concert at night.
