Our family loves Discovery Green. They have lots of free performances, music, theater, movies, and more. When it is warm the kids love to use the splash park, eat, and then watch a show.
Our oldest daughter has learned a lot at the free classes, martial arts and writer's workshop.

I have attended numerous free events at the park. They are great for families and individuals alike. The park definitely helps bring people to a downtown area that needs it to continue its revitalization. They have a number of services that are good for the body and mind that are free and otherwise wouldn't be accessible to some lesser-privileged Houstonians. It is a lovely space and a great addition to our community.

The free shows they put on for the community as well as the recycling services they provide on Saturdays.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the free parking around the park.

I would like to give my word of support to this great organization. I am a performing artist and composer. A few years back I participated in one of the big concert events at the Green. There were many interesting musicians and the event was really unique and fun. After this I decided to approach Discovery Green staff with the idea of doing an original children's show. I managed to get them to listen to my music and they responded right away. They offered to put my "Brother Tadpole"on saturday at noon, their children's program. I worked hard on this, and this event was great success. Children on stage and in the audience loved it, local personalities and artists participated on stage, the sound man was fantastic, it was unforgettable. Discovery Green even provided some funding from Wells Fargo Bank. This is a great organization because it was helpful and open minded to a new project. it is essential component of the Houston arts and education for children. This organization is one of the best ones I have ever worked with. Sincerely, Dr. Loreta Kovacic, alchemistpiano.com

This organization provided some funds for my "Brother Tadpole" children's show. They also helped market it on the web. Spiritually, this organization helped a lot in making me more confident as an artist and children's producer. As a result, "Brother Tadpole" music has been nominated for a grammy in children's category this year. Also, I have just started a process to become a non profit organization for children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do my best to bring more people to see the shows. This would be probably in the area of marketing through media and other forms of creative marketing.

At first, I thought the idea of Discovery Green was ludicrous. Who would want to come all the way downtown to go to a big park? Boy, was I wrong.

Not only have my family and I thoroughly enjoyed all kinds of different events and activities at Discovery Green including concerts, movie screenings, the playground and water sprays, and touring attractions, it has actually been the "go to" place we take out of town guests now to show off Houston. I also work for a company that runs conventions across the street at the George R. Brown, and visitors from all over the world have commented to me about how wonderful Discovery Green is.

And the fact that so many of the park's events are free has been greatly appreciated. Discovery Green is an incredible boon for our city, and I look forward to going there for many years to come.
