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.
All aboard! The Hermann Park Railroad and pedal boats are back. We've got a few new precautions, but you can once again take a tour of the Park or a boat ride around the lake. Trains run daily from 10 am to 5 pm, and boats are available from 10 am to 4 pm. Click below for more information.
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.
