Discovery Green is a beautiful park in the heart of downtown Houston. It offers a pond for boat racing, 2 separate water features for the children and a great play-ground area. It also has 2 Cafe's offering quality food, different gardens to explore, a concert area and a general open area for families to gather and play games - Discovery Green offers free outdoor games to families on the weekends so you don't have to lug all of your equipment - frisbies, balls to throw...you name it, they probably have it. During the week they offer various outdoor exercise activities and on the weekends a farmers market and many activities for children. My family has enjoyed the park numerous times for picnics, water play, free "movies on the green" on the weekends and various family productions. My son loves to go to Discovery Green in the winter to enjoy the outdoor ice skating rink - it's fabulous! Where else in Houston can you enjoy an outdoor ice skating rink?!?!?! The best part of Discovery Green is that it is Eco Friendly. We LOVE Discovery Green and feel that it is a great asset to Downtown Houston and to our family!!

My children and I all year long look forward to and enjoy the ice skating rink in the winter time. During the spring, summer and fall my children en joy rolling down the hills and playing in the water. I enjoy the exhibits and the resturants and the clean facilities. Discovery Green is a very nice place to be able to get out and enjoy nature.
