Discovery Green is a 12-acre park created by a public-private partnership between the City of Houston and the non-profit Discovery Green Conservancy. In its first two years, the park welcomed more than 1. 5 million visitors and hosted more than 800 public and private events. The Discovery Green Conservancy works with hundreds of programming partners to present three dynamic seasons each year. Most of the events at Discovery Green are FREE and open to the public. The Conservancy raises all the funds needed for the programming and ensures that the park remains an accessible and incomparable public gathering space.
