Sign up by August 31 and save $10! Registration fees will increase to $35 on September 1. Be sure to secure your spot early!
Join us on August 6 as we celebrate the 173rd birthday of our Park’s namesake, George Hermann. In honor of his 173rd birthday, children 12 and under can ride the Hermann Park Railroad for $1.73. Activities for kids will include arts and crafts, coloring, and complimentary face painting. The party will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Kinder Station, home to the Hermann Park train.
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.
