Quite difficult to get when walking from Downtown. The Heritage Society Museum area was good with the historical buildings. The Bayou was brown and strewn with litter. Not conducive to a pleasant walk. Hermann park is far superior.

The gardens are nice. Walk along the river too. See the police memorial and wander around. There's some cool spots to discover.

Still in search of some calm and tranquillity in urban Houston - this park isn’t perfect but I found it well worth a visit. A big plus is that it separates bike paths from foot paths, so walkers aren’t in danger of being run over...More

Kim. There are a number of bike rental and drop off stations in the downtown area. You pay for bikes at a rack, and don't have to drop them off at the same rack! Since we live here, and prefer walking instead of cycling, we... More

Lots of parking space. It's not so large so you can park at any of them. Also, call the Park staff and they can give you more details.
