It's so well planned and so enjoyable for human and canine visitors that we forgive the Discovery Green Kinder Large Dog Run and Harriet and Joe Foster Small Dog Run its extremely cumbersome name(s). Discovery Green has separate fenced areas for large and small dogs, with both crushed gravel and grass as ground cover. Drinking fountains, benches and nearby shade trees make the runs comfortable even on Houston's hot summer days. One of the main reasons fans are drawn to the Discovery Green runs is the multi-use park that surrounds them. Live music and dance performances, film screenings, festivals, food vendors and lots more are scheduled year-round. There's something for everyone, with two legs or four.
