Hermann Park is one of Houston's most-visited public parks. Situated between Fannin Street and Cambridge Street, it is within walking distance from the Texas Medical Center, Rice University, and the Museum District, and within a few miles of the Third Ward, the historic Astrodome and NRG Stadium (home stadium for the Houston Texans). The land that it occupies was presented to the City of Houston by George H. Hermann in 1914.Plan my day in Houston using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
This historic 445acre park space is home to numerous cultural institutions including the Houston Zoo, Houston Garden Center, Miller Outdoor Theatre, Houston Museum of Natural Science, and the Hermann Park Golf Course, which was one of the earliest desegregated public golf courses in the United States in 1954.

First off it was free so it’s already a ten in my book. The place was full of things to see and the mood was great, so serene! The tea house building was something to definitely look forward to. The amount of life that was in the park made this walk enjoyable (so many ducks and large Koi!) It was extremely photogenic.
A must see for Japanese garden fans! Beautiful and relaxing Japanese garden with a great variety of typical plants, small lake, waterfall, short trails. Squirrels come by and eat from the hand. Also close by to other park amenities and the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
