The Discovery Green Park in Houston, Texas is a 12 hectare land which has been converted into a ?green? park with the collaboration of the City of Houston and the Discovery Green Conservancy. The park which is located within the sprawling city of Houston has seen a large number of visitors ever since it was opened back in April 13, 2008.
The park which is placed in downtown Houston plays host to a number of big events in the past including the inauguration of then Houston Mayor Bill White in 2008. The park currently has a number of scheduled annual activities which are related to environmental awareness and conservation.
Houston?s Discovery Green has been designed to incorporate elements from New York?s Central Park including a lake and great sceneries. Park visitors can also enjoy great meals either for lunch or dinner with two different restaurants inside the Discovery Green that they can choose from including Discovery Green?s signature restaurant known as ?The Grove? and ?The Lake House? where they serve meals such as burgers and fries for the whole family.
The Discovery Green in Houston is also an embodiment of being Earth-friendly as it is strict with several rules for visitors. One important rule for visitors to remember is that glassware and alcoholic beverages are not allowed inside the park. Discovery Greens also follows a strict zoning zone. Dogs, bikes, roller skates and roller blades are not allowed in other parts of the park except for the dog run zones and bike lanes.
The Texas based Discovery Green is also a distinct park and recreational facility that also boasts of a LEED Certification or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
This Houston based park also has a performance stage called Anheuser Busch Stage as well as a grass lawn called the Jones Lawn designed specifically for star gazing and picnics. The park?s Brown Foundation Promenade is a walkway that shares space with several century old oak trees.
