This is a nice place to walk around and just relax. There is a boating lake, cafeteria, outdoor theatre, playground, Japanese Garden and Zoo there. There is plenty of parking near by and the museum district within walking distance with many places to visit. The Zoo is very nice and there is a small train that runs around the park.

A place to get outdoors. Living in the city can get boring sometimes so it's always good to get outside. Girlfriend loves to go and just hang out. Great museums in the area and the zoo is within walking distance. Must check out the outdoor theater in the area at night also. Most shows are free and family friendly!

Hermann Park is a lovely respite from the chrome and glass of busy Houston, Texas. While staying at the Houston Marriott Medical Center, I walked to Hermann, for a morning of exploration. Though it was hot, the park offered a lot of shade, and interesting vistas, at every turn of the path. The shade was welcome, as the walk was... More

This place is perfect for Sunday walks. There's a lot of shade. It's peaceful and a great place for families and couples. The pond nearby makes for great reflection areas too.

There is the zoo, museum of natural science, museum of fine arts, the health museum all within walking distance to the park. It's a busy place around holidays and weekends.

If you want to get out and walk around with a date and visit the pond, Japanese garden, or paddle boat can't beat it. and if you time it right you can grab a show at the Miller outdoor theater for a full day.

Great park for sitting and chilling with friends. We visited many times to just sit on the water edge, feed the ducks and chill out. But there's loads to do, small fountains for kids to play in, pedal boats, the zoo, biking. I'm sure loads more. Defiantly worth a visit. Take a cooler along of food and drinks as there's... More

The space is huge, go early for parking closer to what you want to see. The train is so fun for young kids and paddle boats are also. Both are very reasonably priced. The grounds are well kept overall. Be cautious of the corner near Fannin and Cambridge, both due to dangerous traffic patterns and a large homeless population that... More
