The train ride in Hermann Park is fantastic! Went to the Hiuston Zoo to see the lights and before dark we went on a train ride which was very enjoyable with a group of five adults, one toddler and one baby.

One of the best park in town for family day out. We enjoyed the boating on the lake. Best place for taking couple photos and other type of photography. There is a nice toy train ride for kids and the cafe near the lake is the best one for an evening to spend with family.

Spent a few hours at Hermann Park this Thanksgiving holiday. As it was a holiday most things like the train were closed, but it was still worth the trip. I really enjoyed the Japanese Garden. I also liked the statue of Sam Houston, which is why I want to come to the park in the first place. If you get... More

It's a great place to exercise or just sit and enjoy nature within the city. There is a new area being built on the north side of the... More

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!!!!
