Hermann Park Centennial Gardens Public Meetings
In celebration of Hermann Park's Centennial in 2014, the Houston Parks and Recreation Department (HPARD) and the Hermann Park Conservancy have worked together to enhance the park, with more projects to come. The Houston Garden Center is set to be transformed into the Centennial Gardens, a lushly planted landscape destined to become a favorite spot for Houstonians and tourists.
You are invited to attend two public meetings to learn more about the $30 million project, which is scheduled to open in 2014, the year Hermann Park celebrates its 100th birthday.

Some of the exciting changes include eight acres of various gardens from a formal rose garden to an interactive family garden, a sculpture promenade featuring public art donated by countries around the world and a pavilion designed by world-renowned architect Peter Bohlin.
The prestigious design team consisting of nationally known architects and landscape architects has thoughtfully created preliminary plans with the Gardens' diverse constituents in mind, from families walking in from surrounding neighborhoods to visitors traveling to attend a garden show.
