  • The Park is very large, don't we visit the entire Park, but the part we know, we loved the beauty and cleanliness of the place. With ample parking, snack bar, pedal boats for rent, picnic areas, areas for cycling, running and rest. There is also the Zoo. We were in the winter, so the landscape is not the prettiest, but still worth it!

  • Great open space to have...picnics, a great day at the park...The Houston Zoo is in the area...Good golf course near by.. an open air venue for music, plays or whatever you can do on a stage. We had a family picnic and we all had a great rime. We had plenty of space to run and play...Frisbee, Frisbee golf...threw the football and brought the acoustic guitar and made some new music. It was a beautiful day and we all had such a wonderful time. I definitely recommend this park for family functions or just by yourself for great serenity.
  • I love just strolling through the park here. The peddle boats are a lot of fun and a bargain for a group of 4 or a couple. My granddaughter had a wonderful time chasing the ducks in the boats and then the ducks wanted her potato chips and they chased us. Very nice variety of play areas and even a water playground which I love myself. The Japanese gardens aren't to be missed either.
  • This park is just gorgeous everywhere you look. I enjoy coming here very much. It is very common to see people taking graduation and anniversary pictures. There are monuments throughout that you can explore and definitely check out the Japanese Garden if you get a chance. The gulf is a good looking course, however, I've never used it, so I can't comment on the service or how busy it is.
  • This is a fun exciting park to visit. There is no parking in the parking lot suggested. The only place to park is in the science museum parking garage. And they will charge you twenty dollars upon your exit. Huge playgrounds for kids. Plenty of opportunity for them to play in the water. We loved the train ride, it was $3.50. The restroom with the large shelter, by the playground had its toilet overflowing. Plenty of picnic tables and water fountains. We loved the Japan garden, beautiful. We would definitely love to go there to hang out sometime, but got to find better parking. Twenty dollars is not acceptable.
  • Essentially everything you always dreamed a park would be. There are beautiful flowers, trees and a lovely pond. The pond also has pedal boats for 11$ a boat! There is a bike rental (completely mechanic, no interactions required) that is 3$ for 30 minutes. There’s also a train that goes throughout the park. You can eat here, enjoy the view and then check out he zoo after.
