Discovery Green is an amazing park! When you are in the beautiful setting of the park you almost forget that you are in the middle of a big city. This park has really helped to bring the community together. They have great events yearly, a lot are free. Live music, festivals, art exhibits, movies in the park and more. It's a very family and pet friendly place. The play area and water features are great, especially during summer in Houston. The park construction is inspiration to all. They have done a wonderful job making this park eco friendly!

Discovery Green has fantastic facilities - the play park is top, as are the water fountain for kids, the nature zones and pond, the stage area. My family have enjoyed concerts and films for free in the happiest of settings, And to think it is all for free!

My family was enchanted walking under the huge pictorial globes at Christmas and where breathtaken by the large glowing photo exhibit of extreme sports. Thanks to the friendly and curteous staff that look to make our play time on the grassy areas fun and offering equipment for outdoor games. Discovery green is a breath of fresh air for us and a place to meet our friends. I wish we had more bike lanes leading to this lovely spot.

My grandchildren and I love the park and facility. All activities are free. some are educational and some are just for fun. We get our exercise for the day and meet people from all cultures. I get e-mails through internet for upcoming events and forward the mail to my friends. There are always planned events for people of all ages.

We recently moved here from New Jersey (just outside of Manhattan). My husband and I have two children, ages 11 and 7, a puppy, and my 80-year-old dad (a true New Yorker) now calling Houston home. Recently, we went to Discovery Green because we heard about the ice sculpting contest. We enjoyed the beautiful weather and event and felt almost guilty because as we watched the artists doing their thing with the ice, on a gorgeous Winter day here in Houston, our family and friends were digging themselves out of ice and snow as New York City faced its worst Winter on record! Thank you, Discovery Green Conservancy, for the wonderful events you host and for adding such color to Houston!

In Discovery Green Park most of happenings are outdoor, which challenges the old good myth that Houston is indoor city. DG not only changes the city but also keeps changing Houstonians, taking them out of their houses, and making them to do fun and active things outside: listen live music, practice yoga, watch art shows.

Kids adore DG for playing fountains, playground, skating rink and juicy burgers from Lakeside cafe

Love the free plays performed in the summer months. My friends and I spent the afternoon watching Shakespeare and enjoy some cold drinks. When we needed a break from the sun, we were able to enjoy the active side of the park with frisbee's and sno-cones in the shade of some trees.

The
fountain was a real treat. It's both beautiful to look at is and refreshing. It was hard not to smile with the children that were happily playing in the water.

The outdoor ice rink, recycle saturdays, farmer's market, and more, I'm always talking about going there with friends and out of towner's. I live about 30 min from downtown, but think the drive is totally worth it!

We love the Discovery Green park. It is a great place to take the dog and relax in the park. We live close to downtown and think it is great to have the park close to us. We also really like all the activites they offer at the park, especially since they are all FREE!

It's just so wonderful to have a green space in the middle of a big city that provides so many excellent activities. Blues and burgers, concerts, movies, ice skating, art bikes, and so many other activities that discovery green provides have really enriched Houston.

As a professional choreographer and a mother, I have found Discovery Green to be am irreplaceable and valuable resource to introduce both my son to the arts and my art to the Houston public. Discovery Green gives so many people a new experience to the arts - people who may not see it otherwise!
