Discovery Green is my favorite park in Houston! After visiting Discovery Green for the first time, I went and started telling people how much I love it! You can enjoy the park without bumping into anyone. The Urban Market on Sundays is a treat. After shopping the market, you can relax on the hill or on the flat lawn... There is something for everyone to do. The greatest reason why I fell in love with this park is that it is an "organic" park and I am all for natural and organic living! Whenever I think about going to a park, I always think of Discovery Green first....

I am grateful for such a place as Discovery Green because of the opportunity to have a safe place for my kid's and I to go and enjoy ourselves with all of the various activities scheduled.
