Organized Exercise Programs

The City of Houston and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department have made the decision to limit the number of organized exercise programs/groups operating within Hermann Park. Hermann Park Conservancy has been asked to assist them by implementing a permit program for exercise programs/groups in Hermann Park.  

Permit lotteries take place twice a year in May and November. Permits are issued for a six month duration. There is a $600 fee for the six months. If the maximum number of permits are not reached during each lottery, we may consider issuing permits on an interim basis. For more information about exercise group permitting, contact
