We stopped here after a long morning in the car for a picnic to let the kids stretch their legs. We didn't regret it. They have a delightful playground that even interested my teenager. It was large and not your typical playground equipment. I'm not really into bird watching, but even my untrained eye spotted some pretty neat birds. The... More

We went there for a Geocaching gathering in the gazebo. The view from there is beautiful. After the meeting we drive around the park just to look around. There is a very nice playground & fishing pier. We also spotted a very nice playground & walking trails. We were not able to stay due to prior commitments. However, we will... More

We went to the Baytown Nature Center for the first time this last weekend. We were able to do a five mile walk through the park while looking out for wildlife. We saw a couple of oprey, roseate spoonbill, great blue herons, white herons, pelicans and a ton of egrets. What a great place to spend a day out in... More

Today makes the fourth time we've enjoyed the Nature Center. Although I see people fishing in the designated areas, we go for the wildlife - birds year round and butterflies and dragonflies most of the year and for the views of the San Jacinto Monument, Baytown bridge and wide variety of ships making their way along the Ship Channel. Today... More

One of the best parks in Baytown. Great place for bird watching, family fun or group events suitable for outside. Nice breeze off the bay.

We participate in the United Way of Day of Caring. We revitalized the children's play area. It is a wonderful place to visit in Baytown for nature lovers and for a peaceful visit. I frequently visit just to take in the beautiful scenery. I would recommend the visit to anyone.

It was suggestd we visit the Nature Center as we were our exploring some of the area's historical sites and were surprised to find such a neat little place off a fairly non-descript road to an oil refinery! It doesn't look like you might see much from the entrance, but after paying our $3/person entry fee we were pleasantly surprised... More
