      Brooke –

      It depends on what is close by… but I like:

      Discovery Green (It’s not a “city park” but it’s free!)
      Levy Park (It’s small… but it’s a great playground and has big bathrooms.)
      Shady Lane Park (It is a beautiful park)
      Ervan Chew (It’s been a favorite… but it currently needs a good power washing and drain cleaning. Hopefully that comes soon!)
      Also, the Museum of Fine Arts has a new small splashpad by the sphere and sculpture garden. We are going to try it soon!

    The Museum of Fine Arts has a new small spash pad. Just a FYI, the parking is scare. There is a parking garage that charges visitors.

      Agreed! We like to park across Montrose Blvd, by Bell Park, on the street. It’s a short walk… but free!
