DID YOU KNOW?

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.

Planning for the Park's Future

As Houston rapidly grows and changes, Hermann Park needs an updated master plan to meet its needs for the future. In October of 2015, Hermann Park Conservancy hired award-winning landscape architecture firm, Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, to lead that charge by developing an updated master plan for Hermann Park that will guide further Park improvements. Read more about the master plan and send us your ideas for the future of the Park: ideas@hermannpark.org.
