Discovery Green:

Discovery Green is located in downtown Houston, and it's a 12 acre public park.  You can find a large green space, park, splash pad, lake, a stage, a dog park and lots more at Discovery Green.  There are also restaurants located there including The Lake Houston and The Grove.  Discovery Green is located at 1500 McKinney St, and it's right across the street from the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Hilton Americas Hotel. They offer a ton of free events to families, and many of them take place on Saturdays.  Aside from special events that are always taking place, I encourage you to check the website's calendar for free regular events as well.
