A dog park, one of the most requested features from the community, is in the homestretch of fundraising and we need your help! Featuring dedicated areas for large and small dogs, play equipment and water features, ample shade, and on-site parking, we are excited for Hermann Park's four-legged visitors to have a place to call their own!
The Commons at is an upcoming project to transform and revitalize 26 acres in the southwest portion of Hermann Park. Complete with immersivse and accessible playscapes, restored natural habitats, unique art installations, and a spot for everyone in the community, the Commons will usher Hermann Park into the next phase of its 20-year master plan.
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.
