The Hermann Park Nature Play Area is open! The PNC ImagiNature Playground is located between Miller Outdoor Theater and Kinder Train Station. If you park in the free zoo lot, near the B Cycle bikes and the pedal boats, you will be close.
The Hermann Park nature playground has a shady trail with seven little play areas. One of my kids described it as a nature trail with imaginative places to play along the way. (So don't be expecting something like the Houston Arboretum playground. This is different!)
If you are a zoo member (or pay admission), you can walk over to play at the Houston Zoo's Wild Nature Play Area too. It is close by!
