Hermann Park Conservancy will celebrate the Japanese Garden's 25th anniversary in 2017. The Conservancy is actively fundraising for major renovations due for completion by the anniversary year. Planned improvements include a west gate entrance, a dry stream garden, an event lawn, and new plant materials.
Conservancy members receive exciting benefits including free tickets to ride the Hermann Park Railroad and pedal boats, unlimited free rides on the train on the second Saturday of every month and a 10% discount in the Conservancy Gift Shop and Pinewood Cafe.
Celebrate the holidays with a trip on the holiday train! Each holiday season the Hermann Park Railroad gets decked out with lights and garland for riders to enjoy a festive ride around Hermann Park.
Help keep Hermann Park beautiful! We invite you to be a part of Hermann Park's vital support system with a gift to our Annual Fund. The Annual Fund is the Conservancy's general fund, so your donation is used where it is needed most. By making a gift, you can help us ensure that all of Hermann Park's day-to-day maintenance and operations needs are met.
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.
