My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Discovery Green Conservancy, Houston, TX, USA
I really enjoy Discovery Green Park. I think the Consrvancy does a great job putting on a variety of different show, events, classes and entertainment. They try to offer something for everyone, kids, youth, young adults, families and seniors. I have been there for outdoor movie nights, hot air ballon rides, premier photo exbihits, live bands and dance classes to name a few. I can bring my dog, my chair and sit outside and just watch people, watch the kids play or enjoy the sponsored events.
They have a great internet site, and a weekly email newsletter listing their calendar of events which I find very useful in planning my visits. Plus they will send out special email blast for special one time events. I think they really try to get the word out to the public about the park and it's offerings.
I drive about 15 miles to attend their events and wish I lived closer to take advantage of more of their offerings, like their weekly classes. Plus they even offer a farmer's market and recycling to show their support for the environment.
The park is currently well maintained and kept cleaned. I do not know what their budget is but with all the cut backs in the City of Houston, I am worry that they might not be able to maintain the activities and upkeep of the park. I am hoping this will not be the case.
