The eight-acre McGovern Centennial Gardens were custom-made for Hermann Park. Visitors can explore a variety of themed garden rooms arranged situated along a spacious central lawn called the Centennial Green. Visitors can see a pagoda provided by Taiwan as part of the Sister Cities Association. When there, don't forget to look up at the colorful ceiling. Across the path from the pagoda is a statue of Chinese philosopher Confucius sculpted by the late Willie Wang.
