In an area with so much for a visiting tourist to explore and enjoy, Hermann has not overlooked the accessibility of well-maintained, multi-purpose greenspaces with historical significance and plenty of built-in entertainment.
As the days get longer, order a picnic lunch from a local Hermann restaurant and throw out a blanket under a lumbering oak tree. Or maybe plan a fresh-air office meeting on a table at a park pavilion. With several large, convenient shelters to choose from, sharing a space, even on a busy weekend, won’t feel crowded. Soak up the sun in a fun family park or on a quiet park bench along the mighty Missouri River—whatever the experience, Hermann is happy to provide the perfect park setting.
Rent a Park in Hermann
The Upper City Park is home to the historic Rotunda, an octagonal brick building built for an agricultural exhibition in 1864. This unique building is available for reunions, weddings, anniversary parties, and corporate events. Also located in the Upper City Park is the Jaycee Pavilion—the largest pavilion in the park system which includes a newly renovated bandstand stage perfect for musical events.
The Clara Eitmann Messmer Amphitheater on Gutenberg Street is the first choice for corporate picnic rentals. With a full kitchen, bathrooms and stage area, this park can be customized to meet the needs of any company event. With plenty of lawn seating, this lovely acoustic space is also an ideal Hermann landmark for a concert company or individual band to rent for performances.
The Lower Level City Park is packed full of all of those family and kid-friendly activities. With multiple pavilions complete with grilling areas, bathrooms and playground equipment, this is a prime RV parking area. The Lower Level City Park is home to the pool, basketball and tennis courts, baseball fields and the city pond. Think out of the box for your corporate excursion, with auditorium-style seating, maybe a company ball tournament or perhaps even a fishing contest to reinforce a little friendly competition or team building!
Enjoy Hermann Along the Missouri River
River views are tough to beat! The Riverfront Park in Hermann is within walking distance from the Amtrak and provides a pavilion space for watching the water in any weather. Many visitors grab a coffee or an ice cream in town and then head down to the riverfront to watch the powerful currents in action. And now is the perfect time of year to catch the bald eagles while they perform in-air acrobatic. The Riverfront Park has front row seating to watch them soar!
You will find that the Missouri River’s history boasts of a very busy trade channel—though the river is not the source of incoming shipments that it once was. You might not realize that Hermann has its own boat ramp. The structure is safe, clean and provides ample space to put-in fishing boats, pontoon boats, wave runners, ski boats and non-motor river rides. Next time you are planning a Missouri River outing, consider a few hours of exploring the town before you head down to the water!
