Description

Houston Press' Description

A vast prairie of little-used parking lots downtown was replaced by Discovery Green, a dozen or so acres of green space, bocce courts, lakes, water parks, performance spaces and restaurants. Sure, the name of the place is meh and they got a little sponsor-happy, but when you take in a concert or visit a farmers market at Discovery Green, you really feel like Houston is giving Chicago a run for its money as America's third city.

Merchant's Description

Discovery Green offers a wide variety of programming throughout the year. All events at the park are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted. Discovery Green presents Houston's diverse world-class performing, literary and visual art in its Art Series. Discovery Green's Entertainment Series offers movies, Extreme Wii competitions, and concerts by talented musicians that showcase a rich variety of Gulf Coast and Central Texas sounds. For the health and fitness-minded, the Healthy Living in the Park series offers a weekly urban market and exercise classes such as Pilates, Yoga, and Zumba as well as a Hip2BFit exercise class just for kids. The Families and Children Series offers hands-on workshops and activities suitable for children and their parents.

    If you have something important to tell a friend, take them to the listening shells and have an intimate long distance discussion via sculpture.

    Parking is always a bear. If you can parallel park, head directly north a couple of blocks...there is usually street parking just a short walk away.

    Beautiful park. Always something exciting to do!
