POINTS OF INTEREST >

DID YOU KNOW?

The Grand Basin, part of Hermann Park’s early plans, was created in 1925. Decades later, a gift from Kathrine and John P. McGovern made it possible for major improvements to be made to the six-acre lake. In 1999, the old lake was drained and enlarged. The new eight-acre McGovern Lake opened to the public on April 21, 2001.
