A good sized open space in the centre of the city that could be really spectacular with additional planting. Good to see but a make-over by Piet Oudolf reknown Dutch Landcape artist would not go amiss ........ enjoyed it but it was lacking something.

Excellent park in downtown Houston, right next to the convention center. Several splashpads, huge fields to run and play, an awesome playscape, art installations, and food vendors. We spent several hours here, and my son asked to come back the next day.

We were at Discovery Green on Nov. 3rd,2017. We had taken a class at the quilt show and were leaving the GRB around 9:00 P.M. we caught the tail end of a show with young performers. It was excellent. The Dancing Water display was beautiful....More

I truly enjoyed the walks everyday at Discovery green. It feels very safe as there is always a security guard around, the grounds are very clean and just a relaxing place to take a stroll.
