Has a nice blend of shade and sun. The Japanese garden is especially nice. Parking was difficult, but we had a nice walk.

Love this park. Its great for walking and relaxing. There is a beautiful reflection pool and flowers everywhere. You can also take a train ride around the park. And at the very end there is a playground and water sprinklers to play in, in the hot weather!!!!

Is this Houston? That is what first thought when I came here. Next to the Museum District, the spaces here are wonderful. I felt like I was in a city on the East Coast (well, almost . . .). This is Houston's version of Grant Park in Chicago.

Hermann park offers more that people think, its great for running, playing some sport or be romantic with your significant other by having a nice picnic. Usually the parking is not bad, so you need to be little bit more patient when it comes to that.

Ducks and birds, fountains and pools and boats and paths and trees. A Japanese garden. An outdoor stage. School children come, families, joggers, morning yoga classes, lovers old and young holding hands. Everyone enjoys the serene beauty of Hermann Park.

We went on a nice warm day. We walked around the fountain, and got to ride the miniature train (a nice instagram picture). The only thing about this enjoyable park is that, in some parts, you can see a multiple of homeless people hanging out. The city of Houston should do more for these people, and it was upsetting and... More

We visited on a lovely warm autumn day. We rode this mini railway all the way round. The lake looked wonderful with loads of families playing around it. In fact, it was a Houston we hadn't seen before - just families everywhere. A great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
