Nice place for a little walk on a pleasant day. Also the site of various festivals. A bit difficult to find parking, but if you're already downtown worth a visit.

A lovely peaceful park right in the city - delightful. Early houses etc give an insight into the early years of Houston. A nice surprise (and not advertised enough) is a memorial to the loss of USS Houston in World War II.
