The walking paths have plenty of things your eyes can view, landscaping and ducks in the pond. You can walk in the early morning to avoid the hot sun, or go in the evening to feed the ducks with the kids. If you want to do family photos, pregnancy photos, or even engagement photos, Hermann park would fit your needs.... More

My grandsons love to feed the birds, ducks, fish and turtles around the park. We saw a bird that was hurt and reported it but the workers said nothing could be done. We were all so sad. You must bring your own food to feed to birds, ducks, fish and turtles.

Beautiful. Breathtaking. Peaceful. I find it difficult to describe this place. I loved it. I could sit and watch my surroundings all day. It was wonderful. This would be an excellent home-school visiting site. Science because of the flowers, fruits, and veggies growing. Math because of all the different things to see. Writing because of the writing exercises that would... More

This is a place where you can just enjoy and relax. They have different places for activities , places for picnic , field trip or just enjoying and relaxing. It's good during fall and spring because of the weather - you can just sit down and enjoy. They also have a boating area for a small price or a train.

I'm not sure that they want to be known for this. Houston has several Parks that rival NYC's Central Park. Notably Hermann Park and Memorial Park. But recently, in the evening, we went to the Theater Under the Stars which happens to be located in Hermann Park and it was impossible not to notice that people of all ages were... More

Great track for you to jog on. There's lots of homeless asking you for change so it's motivation to keep running. They usually can't keep up. Last week I saw one OD near the tunnel. Oh yea, pretty sure there are vampires out here at night. May just be crack heads though...

Hermann park is always a great place to stroll, have a picnic or get in a workout. Very large and offers many areas for enjoyment. The Japanese garden is beautiful as well.
