Explore the winding paths and pristine artistry of Hermann Park‘s Japanese Garden.

Many people walk right along the Hermann Park reflecting pool and don’t even know about the Japanese Gardens next door!

This fenced-in garden is right in the middle of the park and free to enter. Walk right in to be amazed by the waterfalls, bridges, paths and trees.

Take a romantic stroll through the lush gardens or bring the kids and let them run. They will be amazed by the bridges, paths, birds and fish.

Take some time to relax on the shaded benches or take a quick walk through. Just be sure to see this hideaway in the middle Hermann Park. Stop back each season to see how the gardens change and how the cherry blossoms light up the Japanese Garden.

Before you leave the park, be sure to visit Patrick Dougherty’s Boogie Woogie next door, splash in the water by the reflecting pool, rent a pedal boat, ride the train or visit the zoo.
