Houston’s Hermann Park: A Century of Community
By Barrie M. Scardino Bradley
This richly-illustrated book commissioned by the Conservancy in honor of the Park's centennial in 2014 makes a great gift for native Houstonians and newcomers alike. Author Bradley places the Park in both a local and national context and covers the Park's renaissance over the last 20 years. The book is available in hard cover in Hermann Park Gift Shop and in selected local bookstores.
