  • The Park is very large, don't we visit the entire Park, but the part we know, we loved the beauty and cleanliness of the place. With ample parking, snack bar, pedal boats for rent, picnic areas, areas for cycling, running and rest. There is also the Zoo. We were in the winter, so the landscape is not the prettiest, but still worth it!

  • Hermann Park is great. It has something for everyone. My son and I were looking to ride the train. It was available for an amazing low price. He had lots of fun and so did I. We also went to the park and I enjoyed how the park has a section designed for 2-5 year old children. He felt really good about the selection of park items. Take a moment and visit if you are looking for a great park.
  • Hermann Park is a fantastic urban retreat. It is a real jewel in the middle of one of the largest cities in America. There are countless places to go and things to see, evidenced by the huge number of people you can find there on any given Saturday. About the only issue is parking, as it can take some time to find a decent parking spot near where you want to be. But whether you want to go to one of the museums, go out on a paddle boat, go to the zoo or one of the many more activities, you can find it here and have a great time.
  • This is one of the best places in Houston. Really peaceful and everything is well maintained. Must visit the Japanese Gardens and if you want a tour of the park you could ride in a train which runs through the park. McGovern Continental Gardens is also very close by and should make a point to visit that as well. And if you get a chance to experience a show at Miller outdoor theatre, one should not miss that opportunity. Also, make sure you don't litter the place as some people don't like cleanliness.
  • I absolutely love this serene area of Hermann Park, The Japanese Friendship Garden! The whole park is absolutely wonderful & the people are wonderful to. Word of advice "Your missing out if you haven't been here!" (Also all park personnel are friendly and helpful)
  • This Park is a Houston landmark. Right in the heat of the museum district and adjoining the zoo, this large park serves as an oasis during the hot summer months. The open air theatre hosts many incredible evening shows throughout the summer season. You can walk your dog, go for a run or just sit back and relax on the lush grass mounds. With plentiful parking available, Herman Park is a must visit for all Houston families and tourists.
