  • This is a lovely and scenic park with lush greenery, walking trails, and even a lake. Because of the beauty of the park, it's not uncommon to find people taking pictures there for special occasions like birthdays, weddings etc. To explore the park, you could use the walking trails or hop on the train. Getting on the pedal boats on the lake is also a fun way to spend the time. It's also great that there are several shaded benches to relax on whenever you need to catch your breath.
  • Nice and big park. Wear comfy clothes! Great place for pictures and just hanging out. Ducks hang around pond and love being fed. Park also has beautiful Japanese garden. Paddle boats available as well. Zoo is within walking distance. Kids area also in this park.

  • Pretty scenic! Took a picture next to the fountain while the sun was setting and some ducks were swimming past. Went biking with some friends and was pretty enjoyable besides a slightly pungent smell near the bridge/sewage area. Probably couldn't be helped since there was sewage nearby but would recommend this place for picnicking, biking, photography, or exercise. A pretty peaceful environment with lots of natural sights to see!
  • I always love going to Herman park especially Miller outdoor theater! I enjoy how they finally separated lawn chairs and blankets since it allows for everyone to have better views. The fact that they have a calendar for their events is great so great shows great atmosphere and culture inclusion. You can bring coolers with food and drinks as along as they are not glass.
