To commemorate Hermann Park’s centennial in 2014, Hermann Park Conservancy transformed this


site into the McGovern Centennial Gardens. 

A variety of themed garden rooms are arranged along a spacious central lawn, the Centennial Green, and are home to more than 490 trees of over 50 species, 760 hedge shrubs, 55,000 perennial bulbs, 650 azaleas and 4.5 acres of grass. 
The gardens include the Arid Garden, the Rose Garden, the Celebration Garden, and the Woodland Garden, and an educational Family Garden, which produces seasonal vegetables, herbs and fruit trees. 

The main entry into the Gardens is through the Cherie Flores Garden Pavilion, which was designed by Peter Bohlin, architect of Apple stores worldwide. McGovern Centennial Gardens hours change seasonally.
