BLOG: We’re Bringing Green Back
We hope that everyone who came to Discovery Green® during Super Bowl LIVE had a great time. Our Discovery Green team is honored to have been a part of such a monumental event that brought visitors and viewers from all over the world to our beautiful city. We loved seeing friends, families and people of all ages experiencing the park during such an exciting event for Houston.
While we are honored to have been selected as the anchor of the nine day festival, we want to ensure the original vision of the park is at the forefront of our programming and events. Discovery Green was built as a neighborhood park to provide Houstonians with a green oasis in the heart of downtown. In less than 10 years, the 12-acre park has transformed from a vacant parking lot to an urban green space where Houstonians can enjoy workout classes such a yoga and Parkour; children can be immersed in a new language or learn about STEM while having fun; families can sit on the hilltop while enjoying a family-friendly flick; music lovers can see their favorite bands live; or visitors can simply enjoy a nice walk in the park along our tree-lined Promenades.
As we are getting “back in the game” after the Super Bowl festivities, the lawns and fountain are getting some much needed tender love and care before our spring season is in full swing. If you happen to visit the park, you may notice some blocked off areas including our lawns and fountains. The lawns are being re-sodded with new grass that will provide visitors with a soft space to sit and relax, our fountains are undergoing maintenance, and our gardens are currently in the process of sprouting!
As we step into a new season we want to thank our visitors for supporting the park and helping us provide great programming for you and your loved ones. We cannot wait to show you what fun programming we have scheduled this spring!
