outdoor space, kids play area, restaurants near by, picnic, sometimes has food trucks.
Really big park in Downtown Houston close to Minute Maid and Toyota Center. The park host all type of events such as movie night, ice skating (seasonal), festivals, etc.
Positioned in the center of downtown, Discovery Green is one of the favs among Houston natives. And if picnics is your thing, I highly recommend this spot! There is a variety of foods and beverages located on the grounds as well.
Great Family outing place with a plethora of Eating spots such as Biggio's, Pappasito's, Pappadeux and The Rustic in walking distance. The Kids will also love this spot
Discovery Green is a great place for families, couples, and solo travelers! There are events happening nightly and their outdoor art exhibits change quarterly. It’s within walking distance of Cottage 313 and you can catch some great downtown sites while there! Don’t miss the electric sailboats! You…
Great family friendly admosphere. This park has something for everyone, to name a a few; kayaking, skating, yoga, playgrounds, restaurants etc.
“About a 30-60 minute drive depending on traffic to Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros baseball team.”
“Built in 1958, Mies van der Rohe's glass-and-steel pavilion, a renowned example of the International Style pioneered by the architect, changed the look of American museums—and the ways in which art is exhibited. Taking advantage of its soaring, translucent interiors, the MFAH made international news in the 1960's by displaying African figures and oceanic totems on impossibly tall pedestals that were placed among potted trees, and by suspending billboard-size canvases by Jackson Pollock and other artists from ceiling cables. Works are sometimes still displayed this way. An eerie tunnel of light by the artist James Turrell now connects the Mies building to a monumental stone addition by Rafael Moneo, which opened in 2000 and more than tripled the exhibition space in this encyclopedic museum housing more than 56,000 works. Louvered skylights bathe galleries in natural light, where blockbuster traveling exhibits are displayed. Across the street from the two edifices is the Cullen Sculpture Garden, designed by Isamu Noguchi.”
“The Houston Rockets (NBA) play here. Right in the heart of downtown. You'll probably want to visit to watch other teams play...”
