Discovery Green is celebrating 10 years, so there are activities during the weekends. We heard some great latinjazz in a nice family-friendly atmosphere.

Love that they have a small doggie run. Our two doggies enjoy it every time. However, it could use a few repairs.

We went on vacation to Houston and stayed across the street from Discovery Green. Great place to walk, roller skate, people watch or watch a movie in the lawn. Very safe place so feel comfortable.

Words can’t describe the beauty of this urban, non-profit Community space. I enjoyed lovely views each morning from the 24th floor Lounge of the Hilton watching the sun rise. There is so much around each corner of the green space with facts about nature, stem,...More
