Hermann Park is huge, beautiful and well-kept. Walking in the park both in the summer and in the winter is very pleasant . Apart from the natural charm, there are attractions, such as the zoo and the train ride. Worth visiting.

Herman Park is great location for many activities. Miller Outdoor Theater is a popular attraction that we have really enjoyed over the years. We have also been to the Botanical Gardens, Houston Zoo and Museum.
