The Hawkins Sculpture Walk is home to ten busts of notable figures from around the world. The sculptures have been donated to the City of Houston throughout the years and were situated in the Park’s International Sculpture Garden. During the transformation of the Houston Garden Center into the new McGovern Centennial Gardens, the busts were refurbished by the Houston Arts Alliance then returned to Hermann Park. They now line the entryway into the Gardens at the corner of Caroline and Hermann Drive. Full statues of Confucius, Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr. are located within McGovern Centennial Gardens, as well.
