Park
“Nestled among Live Oaks in the heart of Downtown, the eco-friendly Discovery Green park has redefined the city’s urban landscape; and together with the revamped Avenida Houston, it has become a bonafide entertainment district. Escape the sun by strolling down the tree-shaded Brown Foundation Promenade, where you’ll also find seasonal art and annual winter light installations. On Jones Lawn, you’ll find a lineup of festivals, concerts and performances, and charity events. Discovery Green signature Kinder Lake covers over an acre of the park, offering activities like kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, remote-controlled sailboats, and ice-skating, depending on the season. And look out for other special events, including the ICE at Discovery Green outdoor skating park, Flea by Night pop-up flea markets, and community activities like yoga, workshops, movie screenings and more. Nearby, Avenida Houston offers a roster of bars and restaurants, events and concerts, and some pretty cool art, including Soaring in the Clouds, a 67-foot mobile of bird and cloud forms made of perforated stainless steel from artist Ed Wilson.”

“Located at the southern end of the Museum District, Hermann Park is one of Houston’s most picturesque and iconic treasures. In addition to housing landmarks like the dazzling Mecom Fountain and Sam Houston Monument, the 445-acre park offers plenty of fun and relaxing ways to spend the day. Hit the tree-lined McGovern Centennial Gardens and you’ll find 8 acres of serenity, with a spacious central lawn, gorgeous Rose Garden, interactive Family Garden, and a sculpture promenade (walk around Hermann Park’s entirety and you’ll discover even more art in the park). Those looking to get zen can wander the stone paths of the Japanese Garden, a hideaway complete with cascading waterfalls and bridges, Japanese maples, cherry trees, crepe myrtles and more. Both gardens are free to the public and open daily. Runners and walkers can check out the Marvin Taylor Trail, a picturesque two-mile path that offers the shade of historic live oaks, or the easy-on-the-eyes Mary Gibbs and Jesse H. Jones Reflection Pool; and those looking for a longer stroll can explore the scenic Bayou Parkland, an 80-acre oasis for native plants and wildlife nestled along Brays Bayou. Parents of your kids will want to book a round trip for their families on the miniature Hermann Park Railroad, while all ages will enjoy renting a pedal boat on McGovern Lake.”

“The Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park showcases an impressive multi-story sculptural fountain that sees sheets of water cascading over large concrete walls and sculptures. The structure's semi-circular shape towers 64 feet above you and is fronted by a large arch and 46,500 square feet of water. It's an attraction that needs to be seen to truly be appreciated. This 2.77-acre park, covered with dozens of live oaks, is located in Uptown Houston.”

“Walk the Trails at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center Drive less than one mile west of Memorial Park to reach a stunning 155-acre nature sanctuary tucked right into the heart of the fourth largest city in America. Meander along the five miles of scenic trails under towering sycamore, oak, and pine trees, and then keep an eye out for turtles and fish as you wander through a shallow wetland. With free admission and much to see, you could spend a whole day here. ”

“Great running trails, biking, walking, and running around. Festivals and live music happen occasionally, there are canoe and kayak tours, and a bayou boat ride tour. The park runs all along the bayou and runs into downtown. Super cool skate park on one end, and lots of room for running with your kids and dogs, pack a picnic and have a good time. Check out the Waugh Street Bridge and Bat colony, too - it's a sight to behold!”

“You can access the Bayou trails from the heights walking path although easier to park along Allen Parkway and hop on the trail. Trail winds through recently renovated landscape with a dog park. Tree lined paths for bikers, runners and walkers all along the Buffalo Bayou.”
