Discovery Green Park in Downtown is really a special place. We have been a couple of times and it is always fun, exciting and breathtaking at the same time. What you will find is a 12 Acre park smack in the middle of Downtown Houston. As you walk in to the Park, it appears to be like any other park that you have been to, but there is so much more.
Discovery Green is actually a LEED Certified Park! You will find 250 Solar Panels, a Green Roof, Gorgeous Architecture and all of this right across the street from the George R Brown Convention Center and about a block away from Minute Maid Park.
Other things that are there are a Dog Park, a Lake with Remote Controlled Boats, Playground for the kids and splash pad for hot days. Or maybe you would want to go visit the Gardens and take a look at Native Plants, have a bite to eat in one of the two restaurants or picnic at one of the many tables.
To the right you will notice the Outdoor Stage where occasionally there is Live Entertainment or you can host an event. Speaking of events, there is a Calendar of Activities being offered for both Children and Adults on about every day of the week.
There is so much to do, it can keep you busy for hours. Don’t Forget, it’s Green in more ways than one. It’s also right in line with Public Transportation, but parking is available-Of all places, right underneath.
You may have to pay for parking but Admission to the park is always FREE!
