Herman. Park is great for families with kids-- a very large area. You can get an open train there that takes you the park-- kids love it -- so do grandparents!!!!

This park is second only to Memorial Park. It's green, spacious and beautifully maintained. Stretching from the Houston Zoo all the way to the World-Renown Texas Medical Center, this park includes lakes, ducks, nutria, playgrounds, the Japanese Gardens, Miller Outdoor Theater, outdoor sculpture, paddleboats, eateries, a golf coarse and walking trails. You almost NEVER see trash on the ground though... More

The park itself is not too bad. The parking area smelled of urine though. Also the city has deemed that smoking (a legal act) in city parks is not allowed. There are many activities here but the park could use a good cleanup.

Every time I take the kids to the Houston Natural Science Museum we have to stop for a quick picnic at the Hermann Park. After a few hours inside the museum, this is a great place for the kids to roll and play.

Just a short visit to the park. Took a while to find the place, because I am not used to driving around the "roundabout". Lot of free parking spaces. You can row a boat, or take a train ride, or feed the pigeons (lots of them by the lake) A peaceful place to relax. A few museums in the area,... More

Not a world class park, but nice for Houston and the zoo is right at hand. If you have a Saturday afternoon, get out to Hermann Park.

I visited the park on a recent trip to Houston. I had never been before and really didn't have any expectations one way or the other. I found it to be a fairly decent park. One concern that I had was that there were a lot of homeless people camped out in the park, including a group of teenagers there... More

This place gives me the warm n'fuzzies because my parents used to take me there as a kid. Since then they have added more train tracks and expanded the park. Lots of clean bathrooms and places for kids to play. There are also paddle boats available to rent.
