“A huge and beautiful park to explore.”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

It's my favorite park so far within Houston city limit. It is in the vicinity of Houston Zoo and Houston Museum of Natural Science, so you can just walk to the park after you visited those places or just go to the park. There is a lake where you can fish and ride pedal boat. If you have little ones, the red-train ride is a must. There is also aJapanese Garden to explore and picnic area to eat your lunch.

“Great Outdoor Space”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is a very clean park right next to the Museums and the zoo. It is a real gem in the city. We are fortunate to have such a resourse. More people should take advantage of it.

too bad about the pine trees, but the city has been working for years to really upgrade the park and all the things to seee inside of it!

“Nice place to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

The park hosts the Zoo and is adjacent to the Museum district. There are walking/running/biking trails. Lots of open space for the kids to run!

“Very nice park right in the middle of Houston”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Herman Park is a very family oriented place - the Houston Zoo, the Museum District, Miller Outdoor Theatre, the Herman Park railroad, and planty of picnic aeas, make Herman Park a great place to visit again and again.
