My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Discovery Green Conservancy, Houston, TX, USA
Discovery Green always hosts family oriented events for people of all ages. I really enjoy the variety of events they have hosted, including outdoor movies, yoga, zumba and other group excercise classes and special events such as a dog competition.
In a time when people are tight on money, it's nice to be able to participate in exercise classes that would otherwise cost $12 plus / class. They encourage fitness in the community by making it accessible to people of all ages, and making it fun.
Discovery Green also encourages a green lifestyle by encouraging recycling, and accepting recyclables on weekends.
This park is unique in that it hosts music and art events on a regular basis. With a lot of educational institutes dropping many music or arts programs from their curriculum due to costs, it is nice that Discovery Green steps up to the plate with a multitude of art displays, concerts and screenings of different movies and films.
They are a great asset to the Houston community, and deserve any and all awards given to them.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
They have provided me a place to workout, relax, eat, listen to music, look at art without breaking my bank account. They have taken an ugly parking lot, and turned it into an attraction of Houston.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
None that I can think of.
