It's a lovely park with monuments and nice water elements. Japanese gardens are worth a quick visit. Next to Museum District.

Herman Park is great location for many activities. Miller Outdoor Theater is a popular attraction that we have really enjoyed over the years. We have also been to the Botanical Gardens, Houston Zoo and Museum.
