The Grand Basin, part of Hermann Park’s early plans, was created in 1925. Decades later, a gift from Kathrine and John P. McGovern made it possible for major improvements to be made to the six-acre lake. In 1999, the old lake was drained and enlarged. The new eight-acre McGovern Lake opened to the public on April 21, 2001.
Hermann Park Conservancy is embarking on a process to envision the Park’s needs for the future, so we want to know: What do you love most about Hermann Park? How do you think the Park could better serve the community? What do you think would make Hermann Park even better? As Houston grows and changes, the Conservancy will help the Park evolve to meet the needs of future generations. Send up your input: email@example.com
