Discovery Green is a new public park in downtown Houston at 1500 McKinney St. at Avenida de las Americas across from the George R.
Brown Convention Center. It was opened in 2008 to provide a performance and recreation area on the east side of downtown and an attractive
entrance to the Convention Center. In addition to a small performing stage, it features Kinder Lake for rowing and kayaking, several venues for
food and drink, and a field of fountains which in the winter doubles as an ice skating rink. In addition to concerts and movies on the stage,
most weekends it hosts festivals of varying sizes. Unlike much of downtown which is quiet on the weekends, Discover Green is always abuzz
with families and singles enjoying this green oasis.
Closest to I-59, the Green is accessible from all major freeways. There is ample paid parking underground and on the surrounding streets for
drivers and a short walk for passengers of the Metro Light Rail Red Line — get off at the McKinney stop and walk east. For bus riders there are
two stops directly in front of the Convention Center as well as many others in the vicinity.
Classes usually meet at the White Promenade bridge over Kinder Lake, near the Lake House.
