Lovely for an early morning walk. I was amused by the sculpture portraying a man and a woman running while each was holding a hand of a child between them. The woman was wearing heels. A special delight was the fact that the buttons for triggering the pedestrian crossing lights worked!

Nice location down from the Medical Center where you can take a stroll, enjoy some quiet time . If your timing is right you may catch a concert in the park . Family friendly

Could be a nice place for a picnic. There is not much to do there at the park... but there are plenty of things to do within walking distance (like the Museum of Natural History, Miller Outdoor Theater, Butterfly Center, etc.

Clean and well kept, this park touches many museums, attractions, and streets in the area. My favorite part was strolling the free Japanese botanical garden, so lovely and peaceful.

I have been visiting Hermann Park my whole life. It is always beautiful, clean and well maintained. The huge old oak trees are fabulous. The zoo, several museums, gardens and an outdoor theater are all located in the park. You could do something different every day of the week at Hermann Park.

You can go to Hermann Park any time and for any ocassion: for a walk, for picnic time with the family, to fly kites, for the outdoors presentations, pedal-boat ride, you name it!...There are many things you can do. There is a new section, just opened about 6 months ago, and it is really relaxing. It can get pretty hot... More

I love walking the park. It's great that in the middle of the city you can see all of the wildlife. Ducks, ducklings, turtles, fish, squirrels and even rabbits.

Great park that is adjacent to the Houston Zoo. There are small lakes, a train that runs through the park, and plenty of grass space for a nice picnic. It shares space with the Miller Outdoor Theater, is close to numerous museums.
