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: email@example.com.
Located in the heart of Houston, Hermann Park welcomes an estimated six million visitors a year. Thanks to its proximity to downtown, the Texas Medical Center, Rice University, and the Museum District, this 445-acre urban park is an important resource for Houstonians.
Conservancy members receive exciting benefits, including free tickets to ride the Hermann Park Railroad and unlimited free rides on the second Satuday of every month, free pedal boat tickets, and a 10% discount in the Conservancy Gift Shop in Lake Plaza.
