This park is exactly what you'd like to have when you think of a park. Lots of wildlife, water, trails, and special gardens meet you as you travel around. The monuments and special events add to the overall experience as well.

What a great addition to Hermann Park. The revamp of the park with the McGovern Centennial Gardens affords an opportunity to walk, see vegetable and planting, picnic, enjoy the sun and fresh air and just relax. It's an oasis in the city.

Pack a lunch and your water and go have fun. Parking is scarce so plan ahead. The fountain was tons of fun! Check out the big trees!

Everything. The park is well maintained with ample security. My neighbors where I lived would feel safe & secure and could walk their pets with ease. Most recent visit was in Spring 1985.

Herman Park is not just a park but an adventure. Because there is all the amenities of local life all around you there. There is the museum, the zoo, Rice University and of course the park. With those four there who needs anything else.

This is a nice park near the Medical Center that's popular with locals. You'll enjoy it for a few hours, but don't expect anything too special!

Check out the Japanese Garden if it's open and embrace the peace and tranquility of it. It's really nice to enjoy to get out of the hectic traffic of the city.
