Confucius in Houston's Hermann Park
The gardens in Hermann Park are a lot of fun, and offer a unique twist: Where else can you spend a day among a vast array of beautiful flowers, surrounded by statues of notable historical figures? The park also hosts an event series, and if you're looking to get out on the water, you can rent a pedal boat, or even do a little fishing!

Get Lost in Hermann Park
Hermann Park—my favorite outdoor space in Houston—is best described by its large areas of green grasses, people (and dog) watching, pouffy quinceañera dresses, picnic opportunities, sidewalks for running, gardens, lake and ducks, children rolling down green hills, and fake Washington Monument. It's a place I continue to visit even though I live much closer to other Houston parks. There's so much to do for all walks of life—between the trails, golf course, playgrounds, pedal boats, and railroad tour.
