Sitting atop the Tudor Family Pine Hill Walk within the McGovern Centennial Gardens, the ornate Chinese Friendship Pavilion was gift to the City of Houston made in 1976, the City's sesquicentennial, from sister City of Taipei. The pavilion was situated in Hermann Park in 1978 and was refurbished by the Houston Taipei Society in 1995. The Friendship Pavilion originally placed in the Park's Houston Garden Center was relocated to the McGovern Centennial Gardens upon their construction.
