Discovery Green is not a city park, it is through the help of a generous giving community that includes individual gifts, large and small, that Discovery Green can fulfill its mission to provide an uncommonly beautiful, urban green space in the heart of Houston, serve as a village green and provide a window into the incredible diversity of talent and traditions that enrich life in Houston.
