Herman Park Grand Gateway


White Oak Studio created the preliminary design for the Grand Gateway to Hermann Park. The historic entrance to Hermann Park is anchored at each end by important Houston landmarks: the Sam Houston statue and the Mecom Fountain. The Grand Gateway project incorporates an illuminated pedestrian promenade under stately live oaks on both sides of the boulevard and sunken flower gardens reminiscent of a historic 1920’s park feature. The project creates a celebratory landscape appropriate to the prominent location and a special foreground for the viewing of each of these Houston civic treasures.
