  • I loved it here. The movies and ice skating on Thursdays was really a nice touch. The playground was very nice.  more »
  • The skates are terrible. After 2 laps, my ankles were bleeding even with thick socks from the poor quality of boot. I paid $28 for 2 people to skate 2 laps and left in pain.The rink opened at 1:00 Chr...  more »

  • A little oasis of green space preserved in the downtown area of Houston- just across from George R. Brown Convention Center. Has just about everything you need right there in the area. The Hilton & Marriott have really large properties that border the park- along with several other hotels, & a shopping mall. There is a nice stage which hosts free concerts every Thursday during the Spring & Summer- and also a restaurant & bar adjoining the stage. Really great place for a family outing on a nice day. Surely worth a visit.
  • Innovative and delightful family friendly. Staff always keep everything clean and tidy. The special programs such as the public art, music series, yoga/Zumba/exercise classes, young writers/poet slam, dancing are all high quality and encourage interactive participation. And the price is also outstanding - FREE! One of the best parks in the USA.
  • Refreshing urban park amidst the busy downtown! Two Stars - For the fantastic setup they have (The water bodies, the fountains, the lawns, eateries all give out a nice positive vibe if you take a stroll around the park). One Star - For the location. (Amazing to have a park in between the high rises). One Star - The events they have. Minus One - Does need some work on keeping the homeless away at some parts of the park. (I've seen people urinating in the pond :/)
  • One my favourite places in Houston. This place never lets me down. Go here during the weekends and there is always something going on in this park. This Christmas while I was visiting the city, took a stroll in the park and there was an ice ring there. Simply love this park at the heart of Houston.
  • Beautiful spot, surrounded by restaurants and things to do. Parking is a little dicey, but overall it's not awful. If you can't get a spot on the street you can find a garage in several different spots. I'm not sure but you may even be able to valet at the Grove restaurant. Might be for customers only though. Cool park, good crowd. Nice spot.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
