This is a great hike for the entire family. The enlarged McGovern Lake includes three new islands supplying wetland habitat. There are many amenities for young hikers, including a miniature train ride and the Houston Zoo. These are advantages a city hike can offer over a country hike. Philanthropist George Hermann gave Houston 285 acres for the park in May 1914. It is the city’s most developed park, and with over five million visitors, one of the most visited.
