The park has a nice array of period houses to view while walking through the park, and at the end a pleasant stroll along the Buffalo river, only it is now overshadowed by the freeway and Interstate crossing overhead, which is a shame.

Lots of trees, water ways, and wildlife. Very relaxing place to take a walk or bring a book and sit somewhere shady. Love it

We took a nice walk through this park following the devistation of the hurricane. We were there in January, and some of the damage was still visible, but most had been taken care of along the walkways. This is a beautiful area of the city,...More

Enjoy the super long trails, some of them should be cleaned. There is a possibility to rent a bicycle from Spotts park which is part from Buffalo Bayou, plus lots of sports activities. This park is better than Memorial.

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.
