Which are your favorite Houston-area parks?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what other people saw as the best parks in the city. Since parks can vary so much, especially by size, I figured I'd offer the following categories to split things up:

1. Very large parks: >250 acres

2. Large parks: 50-250 acres

3. Medium parks: 10-50 acres

4. Small parks: <10 acres

I've visited only a fraction of the parks in the area, but here are some of my favorites:

Very large parks: Hermann (445 acres), Brazos Bend State Park (4,897), Terry Hershey Park (500)

Large parks: Buffalo Bayou/Eleanor Tinsley (124), The TC Jester Parkway park (unavailable, but pretty sure it fits in this category)

Medium parks: Emancipation park (35), Sam Houston Park (20)

Small parks: Helen's park (3), Guadalupe Plaza (6), Around the WWII memorial in the Heights (unsure of the name and acreage of this promenade)
