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!
Hermann Park Conservancy’s 17th Annual Run in the Park is taking place virtually from Saturday, September 26 to Saturday, October 3. That means you can run, or walk, a 5K or 10K between those dates in Hermann Park or from the comfort of your own area, while still supporting the Park. Register at RunSignUp.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.
