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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
attending the events held at the park and just enjoying the green space. some events are one of a kind and I appeciate them taking the time to find these special events and organize them for the public's pleasure.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try to get more free publicity about their offerings so more people would be aware of all they had to offer.
