DISCOVERY GREEN CONSERVANCY
February 7, 2011

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!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Any and all activities that we've come to enjoy.

Ways to make it better...

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

want more vending machines for cold drinks during the hot summer.

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & Enjoyed the beautiful scenery in the always busy downtown area.
