Review for Discovery Green Conservancy, Houston, TX, USA
Truly a GEM in Downtown Houston. Not only is Discovery Green esthetically pleasing and a nice place to spend time winding down in the midst of a concrete jungle; it offers great programs/events/facilities targeted at a broad, diverse population.
As someone new to Houston, I think Discovery Green (complete with its free programs/events for the public) is strategically located as a great marketing tool for Houston - demonstrating that the city and its people are progressive, healthy and family oriented.
I particularly like the fitness in the park programs (especially Zumba classes), the Saturday recyling centre, the concerts in the park series and the various weekend events through out the year.
Discovery Green was a factor in my deciding to live downtown.
