If you're traveling to Houston, the McGovern Centennial Gardens is a must! You'll easily fall in love with the view from the giant spiral hill and cascading water fountain. If it's Spring time, definitely check out the rose garden area (if you're looking from the...More

Great garden right in the middle of the city. Lots to see and a nice little walk. Wasn't too hot on the day we went.

Great place to walk and unwind, places for kids to run and have fun too. Nice seasonal changes in plantings.

If you are visiting Hermann Park or the Museum District, this is well worth a detour. It is also a great place just to spread a blanket, read a book, or relax in the provided lawn chairs. This space used to be a rose garden...More
