Following two years of construction, Hermann Park Conservancy (HPC) and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department (HPARD) will mark the grand opening of the Commons, a sprawling 26-acre area in Hermann Park's southwest corner, on Sat., April 13. 

Project highlights include interactive elements for kids ranging from a Space Adventure play area featuring a 45-foot-tall rocket ship slide, to bayou-themed water activities, to a classic playground experience, to a modern carousel. The project also offers various spaces for connection, including the Central Lawn, the Live Oak Terrace, new grilling and picnic areas, and a refurbished Fannin Pavilion. As part of the Commons project, HPC has planted more than 1,000 trees and tens of thousands of plants, supporting the restoration and conservation of natural habitats. 

The public is invited to attend a grand opening celebration at the Commons beginning April 13 at 9 a.m.
