Discovery Green is my favorite park in Houston! After visiting Discovery Green for the first time, I went and started telling people how much I love it! You can enjoy the park without bumping into anyone. The Urban Market on Sundays is a treat. After shopping the market, you can relax on the hill or on the flat lawn... There is something for everyone to do. The greatest reason why I fell in love with this park is that it is an "organic" park and I am all for natural and organic living! Whenever I think about going to a park, I always think of Discovery Green first....

Let's see, what would I change about Discovery Green if I had to? I would change the parking fee on Saturdays to free parking. This way more people can enjoy what I enjoy with no limits. I love Sundays because I can enjoy it all day without worrying about how much I will need to pay when I leave. Discovery Green is the best regardless!
