Hermann Park Conservancy Overview

Founded in 1992 as Friends of Hermann Park, Hermann Park Conservancy is a nonprofit citizens’ organization dedicated to the stewardship and improvement of Hermann Park – today and for generations to come. Through a public-private partnership with the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, the Conservancy has raised over $125 million for improvement projects in Hermann Park, one of Houston’s most historic and popular greenspaces.

Hermann Park Overview

Hermann Park, donated by George Hermann to the City of Houston in 1914, consists of 445 acres in the heart of Houston. The Park serves over six million annual visitors, most of whom come from the Park's surrounding neighborhoods, which represent a diverse cross-section of the City's population. Beyond that majority, visitors come from across Houston as well as from outside the city limits.


A comprehensive Press Kit, with facts and background about Hermann Park Conservancy, as well as photographs of the Park and events, is available here via Dropbox.
