This park, located in the Museum District, features walking and biking trails, as well as a wheelchair-accessible playground, a fountain playground (perfect for cooling off but put the kids in swimsuits!), and a free mini-train around the park (hop on just across the street from the museums). The park also features a “mini mall” complete with reflection pool and small version of the Washington Monument. For a nominal fee, visit its McGovern Lake and paddleboat your way across.

Great city park.
by Ronak S
Hermann Park is a large beautiful park. Much larger than the Buffalo Bayou, it sits in the middle of the city, at one end of the Museum District. The park has a lot to offer…
Surprisingly nice. A calming space in the middle of a chaotic city. Not far from major medical services that can offer a respite for those in need.
