Hermann Park has never been "just" a Park. It’s been the backdrop for memories of generations of Houstonians, a place of solace or comfort for so many people. 

Hermann Park has been there for Houstonians for more than a hundred years. And it will be here for a hundred more.

During this time of uncertainty, we're doing our best to stem the spread of the virus.

Here’s what we are doing.

Throughout the Park:

  • Sanitizing and cleaning high-touch surfaces and restrooms on a regular basis.
  • Restrooms remain open for visitors to use and, most importantly, wash their hands.
  • For your safety, Hermann Park Railroad and the pedal boats are closed.
  • Pinewood Cafe is open for takeout only, 11 am to 5 pm.

In McGovern Centennial Gardens, we are:

  • Removing the patio furniture for visitors’ health and safety.
  • Closing drinking fountains.
  • The Mount and the circular walkway to the top are closed.
  • Staying open from 9 am to 7 pm.

We hope to stay open during this time to provide a place of solace and relaxation. That said, we need YOUR help in keeping Hermann Park a safe space for everyone.

Here's what you can do:

  • Please maintain a six-foot distance from others.
  • Visit the Park by yourself, or with your family. Do not come in groups.
  • Wash your hands. Restrooms remain open for this reason.
  • If you are feeling sick, please DO NOT visit the Park at this time.
