The Great Houston Outdoors at Hermann Park

Apr 3, 2008
Every city has a nice park or two to visit, thank goodness. These parks generally serve as a rest stop for people who are in the midst of a high-energy vacation extravaganza. Parks are a sanctuary for people who just need a few minutes of peace to gather their thoughts and prepare to go back into the vacation lifestyle. It would be so nice if the vacation getaway was actually presented in a way that might bring that same peace of mind and leisure feel as the parks bring to visitors. Actually, there is one park in Houston Texas that one could spend his or her entire vacation in, find all the greater attractions, and still maintain the serenity that the natural serenity parks tend to offer. This is the Hermann Park.

The Peaceful Park

The Herman Park is a massive area that originally began as an average park atmosphere, with just a few acres of wooded area, benches, and walking trails. However, as time passed, more and more land was added to the park as well as many more attractions within the park area. By the time it was all said and done, the Hermann Park had become an entire vacation in itself.

A Walk of Wonder

For those who enjoy nothing more than a nice walks through the woods, Hermann Park features the Greenway Pedestrian Trail. This beautiful walkway takes you throughout the park-wooded areas and straight into the very heart of the park itself. It is not such a long trail that anyone can't enjoy it as it is merely a short distance of of a mile in length from start to finish. Along the way you wills see such extravagant natural sites as a lovely ravine, luscious green countryside, a magnificent Japanese garden area, a playground for children, and ending in the lovely placid reflection pool that marks the heart of the park.

Critters Galore

There is much more this park than the average trails and rails though. There is also the presence of the Houston Zoo. Every vacationer knows that a zoo is a must in every getaway, and the children of your group will be ecstatic to see the myriad forms of wildlife here. There are creatures from every continent to see, some of which you can even pet! One of the highlights of this zoo trip, for the younger visitors, is the giraffe exhibit where you can actually feed the giraffes crackers.

Endless Attractions

Beyond the zoo and the natural attractions available here, there is a massive lovely green eighteen hold golf course, the Miller Outdoor Theatre, and the Houston Museum of Natural Science. One could spend endless hours here, and at the same time, always be a few steps away from the peace and serenity of a secluded spot of natural wonder and leisure. The Hermann Park in the great urban city of Houston Texas is truly the ultimate one spot vacation getaway opportunity.
