  • Off the beaten track in the northeast corner of Hermann Park. Fenced with just a few gated entrances and relatively few people strolling. Quiet. Immaculately tended gardens and lawns. Pagoda donated.....  more

  • This park sits across the street from the Houston Natural Science Museum. Outside the Garden was a cart selling ice cream and parking. As seen in the photos the garden is beautifully landscaped and there is plenty of seating to sit and enjoy in different spots throughout the garden. Lots of spots to sit and eat a meal in fact there are even tables, vending machines and restrooms on the far end of the garden. A lot of the garden is in the open sun but there are many shady areas to help stay cool. The fountains and other water elements are gorgeous and relaxing to watch. This garden would be a great place photos.
  • The Hermann Park collection has a nice garden. Arrived on a Sunday morning when it was incredibly calm and uncrowded. Before getting to the Mount, you pass through a lovely collection of head sculptures. The Mount is a pleasant ascent up a little hill with a waterfall until the summit. When you reach the top, you have a lovely view of both the Garden and other areas of Hermann Park. The Garden has a lovely vegetable and flower garden that you could stroll through at your leisure. Additionally, there is a pavilion where it appears that the general public can attend free classes. This was a wonderful, free garden where you could learn how to grow different fruits, veggies, and flowers.
