Perhaps we visited at the wrong time of year, but we were a little disappointed. My wife and I stopped by in mid-July to scope out potential fishing spots in our soon-to-be-new hometown. Sadly, we saw little more than a nearly shriveled up mudhole infested with buzzards and aggressive geese. Furthermore, the whole park felt dirty, but I guess that's... More

this park is deceptively big, though you could drive right past it and never know what it holds. There is a full accessible playground next to a large gazebo. There is a no-pay miniature golf course (you have to get your clubs and ball at the rec center) that is fun to play, though not a gooney golf style. There... More

This is a really sweet place to workout on a beautiful day. Although during the weekend it can be busy with a lot of people having family picnics and others that are working it still a very nice place in Katy.

Mary Jo Peckham park is a great place to go with your family on the weekends to have some outdoor fun and get some fresh air. The outdoor park essentially has 3 sectors: the lake, the playground, and the putt putt course. The lake is large and is filled with fish, turtles, and ducks, and not to mention it is... More

The indoor pool is large & enjoyable. Plenty of benches for non swimmers to sit. Locker rooms are decent & the individual showers are clean.

This park is excellent. It has a stocked fishing pond that the state keeps fully stocked with all kinds of fish year round. It also has pavilions with tables, grills and electric that can be used for large parties. It also has a doggy park within were you can let your pet run free and play with other doggies.

There are few places that you can feed the ducks, see fish jumping, and see vultures around. The loop around the park is about a half mile- very easy and enjoyable. This is my favorite park in the city.
