This park has 545 acres of land and lies just beyond the Museum District, on the west side of South Main Street. The parkland is well wooded and has an 18-hole public golf course, picnic areas, and playscapes. Near the Houston Museum of Natural Science, which borders the park, is a garden center with beautiful rose gardens and a garden of aromatic herbs. Also in that vicinity is a Japanese garden and the Miller Outdoor Theater, which often holds free plays and musical performances.
