Harmony Music Park



Come visit Harmony Park, right next to the library! We have some fun, kid-friendly instruments in the park already, as well as a gazebo and benches. We hope to soon have plenty of plants in the park. All of this has been a combined effort to create a place to play, relax, and learn.

Many thanks to:

  • The City of Sherman for providing the main funding for the pavilion and instruments
  • The Friends of the Sherman Public Library for purchasing benches and trash cans for the park
  • The Grayson County Ag Extension Office and Grayson County Master Gardeners, both of whom have been instrumental in advising and planning

The Grayson County Ag Extension office and the Grayson County Master Gardeners have been involved in advising and planning. These groups will be educating city staff and the public, as to what grows the best in this area, times of year, and how to best care for plants.
