Hermann Park is a beautiful location to explore, there are several green spaces and artistic features to explore all over the park. The day we went there was a light drizzle outside but that didnt stop people from enjoying the park. There's space to picnic , peddle boat, and ride the train.

We love going to the park with our kids - it is beautiful and more and more is being done to improve the park. I was blown away by the new work where the old rose garden was located. I love the ziggurat with great views of the park. The Japanese Garden is wonderful, as well. There is so much... More

This park is quite big, and has many lakes, trails, and is even close to the zoo and museum district. The parking can be an issue, but the rail has a stop right next to the park.

I've been traveling to Houston for over a year and friends finally took us here for a walk. It's beautiful with great views of the medical center and downtown. We hit a night with nearly perfect weather - sunny, warm-not-hot, low humidity. The botanic gardens are gorgeous as are the landscapes all around the walking paths. Abundant free parking. I'll...

Hermann Park is large with the museums and zoo and Miller Outdoor theatre. The ambience is excellent in spring (March) but the distances were too long and we got lost trying to find our way out of the park. Better direction boards and maps would help.
