Each year, volunteers contribute more than 20,000 hours to Hermann Park Conservancy's conservation and maintenance initiatives throughout Hermann Park's 445-acres. Our work wouldn't be possible without the thousands of volunteers who work out in the Park, at our special events, and in our office.
HPC members are a vital part of keeping Hermann Park looking good. Membership gifts provide support for the Conservancy's stewardship efforts, like volunteer programs and maintenance initiatives. Members get great benefits too, like free train tickets, invitations to member exclusive events, and more!
We are sad to announce that the Pinewood Cafe is permanently closed as of Sunday, 8/30. However, we are very excited to announce that a new restaurant will be taking over the space and opening this Fall! We can’t wait to share more information with you about its remodeling and concept very soon!
Next spring, Houstonians and their little ones will have a new learning and play space to frequent right here in the heart of Hermann Park. This new play space – geared towards children of all ages – is all thanks to a $100,000 grant from the PNC Foundation.
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.
