Large park that is very close to the Houston Zoo as well as Natural Science Museum. Great place to hang out and people watch if the weather is nice. Parking can be a little tricky though.

We watched a play one evening, very talented artist. It's a nice place to relax, ride a bike or take a stoll.

Beautiful parks. Reflecting pool connecting obelisk and iconic statue of Sam Houston reminds me of DC mall designed by L'Enfant!
