When Houston does something it does it first class, a year ago this park was just a mundane park, nice with big trees and a walking/jogging trail. One year later this park is so beautiful, professionally landscapes, new public art, you will feel removed from the big city of Houston, just beauty to take in everywhere you look. Walk to... More

The train ride is a nice LONG ride through Hermann Park. Pack a picnic, bring some stale bread and feed the ducks, plan time for the huge playground before you leave!

The day I was there it was a very nice well groomed park. There was a Japanese festival going on so that part of the park was pretty crowded, I walked through and the booths weren't that exciting to me, the performances may have been but I didn't watch any of those. However there were lots of people in costumes... More

This park is well used by the people who live here. It is a pleasurable park to walk through. There was a lot of activity in the park, children, adults and kite flyers.

Hermann Park is found in the centre of downtown Houston but you wouldn't know you're in the middle of a huge city. There are areas for children to play and boats for adults to hire and have fun on plus loads of space to just sit and enjoy the sunshine. There's even a little train which runs around the park...

I love this park! It's just such a perfect place to wander around and enjoy the scenery. The Japanese Garden is so pretty, especially during the springtime. I love the huge reflecting pool and the big oak trees that line the path next to it. My dog and I are found here regularly on my days off.

While Spring has not yet sprung where I come from in Canada, it is wonderful to come to Houston in late March and enjoy the pleasant temperature and see the blossoms coming out on the trees. This park is great to wander around in and photo opportunities await with the Sam Houston Memorial on one end and the Obelisk on... More

This is the place to go and spend an hour or your day. Ride the train, watch the water life or just sit and people watch.
