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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
fitness in the park concerts in the park zoo education photography dispay too many to list
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
keep being creative while providing the core program. Zumba classes are a big draw with huge crowds - would be nice to have at least twice per week. Good advertising of the city to visitors who walk by from the convention centre or the Hilton/Four Seasons.
