Houston Discovery Green Park – This is the Houston Discovery Green Park from this aerial vantage point which let us create this great pano overview of this area. The Discovery Green park is 12 acreas right in the heart of downtown Houston across from the convention center, Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park a few blocks away. There are also plenty of places to stay in the area with the the Hilton Americas and the new Marriott Marque to name just a few right across from the park. We loved that from this vantage point you could also see the George Brown Convention Center the high rise hotels and condos in the area along with the Kinder Lake and the childrens spray area for cooling down along with other areas of the park. Along with the George Brown Convention Center they recently added Avenida Plaza and the Wing Over Water water sculptuer so you can spend a day just in this area of downtown Houston. There is parking garage under the park along with many other places to park and you can spend a day on Kinder lake kayaking or enjoy many movies, and music event at the Discovery Green free events while your here. The convention center new Aveida also is a new place to come and listen to music. While we were there people were dancing on the Aveida plaza to the latin beat of a Brazilian group next to the new water feature Wing Over Water right on this new area. There is plenty to do, see and eat in the area so you don’t have to go far. The Discovery Green park in downtown host over 600 free events for all ages every year you can’t beat that.
