Spring Break Transportation Plan for Residents and Visitors to Hermann Park

*Click here for a map of Spring Break parking locations and closures.*

Mayor Annise Parker has partnered with the Texas Medical Center, Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, Houston Museum District, Hermann Park / Houston Zoo and METRO to create easy access to Houston’s hottest spring break destinations – the rodeo, museums and zoo as well as to appointments in the medical center.

With the numerous attractions Houston has to offer during spring break including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Museum District, and the Houston Zoo, the area experiences higher traffic volume during Spring Break - attracting an average of 350,000 people daily (number attributed to average daily attendance of Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, Houston Museum District and TMC).

The goal of the 2015 parking and traffic management plan is to provide Houstonians the opportunity to spend more time enjoying our city’s attractions and less time in traffic and searching for parking.

With limited parking and a large number of people expected to converge on this area of the city throughout the week of Spring Break, March 7-15 and March 15–22, the City of Houston recommends visitors use suggested driving directions, park in recommended parking locations and ride METRORail, which stops frequently throughout the Museum District, Hermann Park / Houston Zoo and continues to Reliant Park for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.

See below for recommended driving directions and parking information. For regular updates visit www.houstontx.gov.
