Discovery Green, a 12-acre park located in downtown Houston, opened on April 13, 2008. With its proximity to the George R. Brown Convention Center, Minute Maid Park and Toyota Center, Discovery Green is an ideal location for the city's newest attraction.

Visitors to the park can enjoy many natural, recreational, art, dining and eco-friendly features including:

    * one-acre lake
    * children's playground
    * interactive water features
    * amphitheater stage and slope
    * dog runs for large and small breeds
    * public art works
    * HPL Express
    * spacious green lawns
    * great restaurants, The Grove and The Lake House

In addition to surface lot and park perimeter parking, the Convention District Garage, operated by the City of Houston, lies beneath the park.
 
Designed by Hargreaves Associates, PageSoutherlandPage and Lauren Griffith Associates, along with a team of engineers and specialists, these carefully planned features allow the park to accommodate those seeking peace at the same time as those seeking activity. Much of this was accomplished via thoughtful use of organic boundaries, such as trees and water features.

The WiFi-connected site has been designed as a green environment that can accommodate many people at one time and service multiple community needs.
