This spring, Houstonians and their little ones will have a new learning and play space to frequent right here in the heart of Hermann Park. This new play space – geared towards children of all ages – is all thanks to a $100,000 grant from the PNC Foundation.
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.
