This is a park where you can go and have a picnic or walk/jog around the three mile track. Especially during those months where Houston is enjoying some nice weather. Once it gets to be really hot it might not be a place to go...More

When visiting Houston, this park is excellent to get some exercise in, regardless of your fitness level. It's quite a picturesque location, and easily accessible, with ample parking.

It is a good place where you can run after a full day face to the computers and meetings. Safe and easy to run a 3 miles path.

I do not know what the history of this park is and what makes it attractive to people. Especially for those who have written positive reviews - everything in the park looks very old. And it needs big investments to look a little better.

Great place to take photos, short distance to Galleria Mall. Free parking in near by Garage. Spend 1-2 hours here is a great retreat for visitors.
