The Commons at Hermann Park—located at the corner of Cambridge and Fannin Streets and just steps from the Texas Medical Center, Rice University, and the Houston Zoo—is an exciting addition to Hermann Park. With an innovative playground, a vast lawn, space for public art and food, the Commons is a gathering place for all Houstonians, crafted as a welcoming civic space.

Designed by legendary landscape architects Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, the Commons serves as new vision for this corner of the Park.
