In 1899 Houston Mayor Sam Brashear purchased a 20.43 acre plot of land for what would become Hermann Park for $26,000.
The first phase of renovations to enhance the Japanese Garden began on November 9 and will be completed in early summer 2016. Portions of the garden will be blocked for safety during construction. Additional renovations are planned to add a new entrance to the garden, an event lawn, a dry stream garden, and more. The Conservancy is actively fundraising for these renovations and is anticipating final completion by the garden’s 25th anniversary in 2017.FIND OUT MORE >
