This park is really pretty. From the Japanese gardens to the lake and the Zoo - very nice landscape. If you are with children, the playgrounds and the waterpark are also amazing. Highly recommended!

Train rides, peddle boat rentals, splash pad, playground, stick house maze, access to zoo/museum and wildlife (turtles,frogs,fish,birds). Something for everyone at Hermann Park. We recently visited and noticed the monument fountains to be not funtioning anymore- bummer since the kids prefer playing in these other than the splash pad behind the zoo. Beware- the southwest corner of the park is... More

Picnic, walk, train ride and free concerts at night. And a great zoo! A great relax after the big city. There is lots of parking around, you just need to read the signs. There is a new lot off of Hermann Drive.

The Hermann Park is pretty big so do expect quite a bit of walking. The reflection pool and the Japanese Garden are my favourite parts of the park.

Enjoyed feeding the ducks. The park is well maintained and having it adjacent to the zoo makes it all the more convenient. Good walking/running trails. The only negative is parking. One lot is limited time (closest to Fannin) and they do ticket (I got one!!)

The park was very clean and open. We felt safe and enjoyed spending time here. We love to walk so this was perfect and close to our hotel.

Wear your sunscreen and a hat to enjoy a stroll around this park. There are a few historic monuments, a golf area, and garden areas. Currently they are constructing a large flower and apparently formal garden. There is parking scattered among the attractions. Thee are few benches to rest on. Few shady areas. Do not sit on the grass, there... More

Cute little train ride that really shows you how large and divese this park is. As you leave the train depot you are treated to wondeful views of the city and the park. You make a few stops to pick up riders but the last stop we made was near a very public interesection with a large group of homeless... More
