Friends had rented one of the covered patios w/grill. Was surprised to see a full grill with running water. Was impressed with the park as when you pulled up the park looked small but once you get out and walk around its actually big. Saw many people fishing in the pond as well. The only negative was parking. Park was... More

We don't seem to catch any fish, but are relaxed after a few hours here. Nice walking trail around the pond. Dog park too.

This park is off the beaten path in town, great place to take the kids. There is a playground, fishing pond and you can also play a round of putt putt golf for free.

Enjoyed walking the park, along the path. Good place to walk, peaceful, quiet, pretty lake, ducks enjoying a swim, relaxing. Weather was perfect for walking. Enjoyed looking at the miniature golf available, play area for children, and the indoor swimming pool and workout equipment. It is better than a city park. This facility is a Harris County park. The pavilion... More

This park is great for family fun, and releasing the energy that the little ones have been building up if they are cooped up in the house all day. There is putt-putt and playgrounds, and a nice long trail around the "pond". Ducks for days and just fun outdoor day. I recommend it for releasing the energy. My kids love... More

I enjoyed moments around the lake where I could take photos of birds. Good place for a walk around the lake. I didn't go to other parts of the park in my two visits but I could see it is a place that children and families can easily enjoy.
