If you are near Ocean Drive/Ennis Joslin (near Texas A & M CC), and have 15 minutes for a walk, take advantage. The birds like this because of the water coming in from the Oso Wastewater Treatment Plant across the street.

I have taken my kids here a few times. It is great. If you walk the whole trail, you can see the shore, but it's not really a swimming place. We start by the playground a block over and walk to the pier (1/2 mile). We see pelicans, gulls, Rosetta spoon bills, ducks, sandpipers, etc Plus some raccoon tracks .... More

We went when we knew another group was there! It was fun to hear someone who knew more about bird watching than us! We saw a good amount of birds to make it fun for the kids!!!

The trail in the park is short, including the boardwalk. There are signs up throughout the park advertising you are being video recorded, but I didn't see any cameras. Looks like a small park that was saved for the bird migrations if you are a bird watcher. No bathrooms and only one informative display. No entrance fee. Here are some... More

Hans and Pat Suter Wildlife Refuge! All of the reviews here give this place huge thumbs up, but you have to consider several things. Firstly, it is a HIGH CRIME area- on the morning of Sunday July 22 there was shattered glass covering two different parking spaces. It has a boardwalk that leads from a short path going from the...

The Hans Suter WIldlife Area is great! It is really a lovely park, and we have been frequenting it for over 15 years. It was a favorite for our own kids, and now our granddaughter is simply wild about it. She calls it the 'Lizard Park', and asks to go frequently. She loves everything about the location; from the playground... More

They've recently made some upgrades. Be careful at this park.. I've had my van broken into. I've heard theirs been assaults. Part of the trail is in the wooded area. I take my german shepard when I go. Park advertises they have 24 hour survalliance. It's a lovely area. I'm not a bird watching person. I go for the walk.... More
