The largest attractions in this area are the Mecom Fountain, located in the middle of the Main/Montrose traffic circle, and the Sam Houston Statue, located in another traffic circle as Montrose enters the park. Also nearby are the Mecom-Rockwall Colonade and Cancer Survivors Plaza. Both of these beautiful plazas, along with the Mecom Fountain, are popular locations for wedding photographs; on Saturdays during the summer expect to see at least several brides and grooms with their families taking pictures here.

Hermann Park is in the heart of one of Houston's prettiest areas, and thanks to the private, non-profit Friends of Hermann Park organization, has experienced a major revitalization over the last few years. The park is home to several museums, the zoo, Miller Outdoor Theater (see separate journal entry), a miniature train, playgrounds, picnic areas, a golf course, lake, gardens, and more. The best time to enjoy the park's many venues is during the fall and spring, when sunny days with mild temperatures and lower humidity levels prevail. However, the park is very shady and many areas can be quite pleasant during the summer.
