PostHeaderIcon Views of Houston: Hermann Park

It's quite the dreary day today -- constant rain and thunderstorms as Houston is prone to have -- so I thought I'd post some photos of a sunnier bent. This is the statue of Sam Houston that stands at one end of Hermann Park.

Hermann Park contains many of Houston's hidden jewels -- including the Houston Zoo, Japanese Garden, Miller Outdoor Theater, Houston Garden Center (love the rose garden) and an 8 acre lake... oh, and the Hermann Park Railroad which takes you through and around the entire park.

The park itself is bounded by the Texas Medical Center, Houston Museum District, Rice University and the Hermann Park Golf Course & Buffalo Bayou.

Although there is parking available, the park is also easily accessible from the Metro Light Rail.
