This nature preserve was created from an old neighborhood which was abandoned and razed after multiple hurricanes. This is a hidden gem with 7+ miles of hiking trails. The majority of the hiking is paved (the old neighborhood streets) with some gravel paths as well. Note that most hiking is without tree coverage, so wear sunscreen. The center includes fishing piers and a playground area. There are nice views of the Houston Ship Channel, San Jacinto Monument, and the Baytown Bridge. The is a $4 entrance fee for adults (13+yr) $1 for children (5-12) and senors (65+).

Who knew tucked back in the woods would be an opening along the bay that provided playground areas for kids themed with sea creatures, multiple fishing piers with easy access, plenty of parking and shoreline to kayak or birdwatch. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit so much so that we added the annual pass knowing that we will be back. Who knew?

We were in Baytown for the day and visited the nature preserve. Entry fee is $4/per person. They have trails although lots of the trails were overgrown. They do have a nice sitting area to overlook the San Jacinto monument. They have some really beautiful sounding wind chimes there. They also have a children’s play area. Additionally they have a fishing pier. Lots of people were enjoying fishing there. Pretty average overall.

In the midst of a huge group of refineries and chemical plants is a real jewel. The old Brownwood neighborhood, flooded by subsidence and hurricanes, is the best 400 acre nature preserve for hundreds of miles. hiking, bird watching, fishing or just enjoying the views, this place is awesome.

This is a nature preserve that came about after a neighborhood kept flooding...it was bought out and returned to nature....you can still run through trails and drive down former streets. There is a park, fishing areas, kids' playground, etc

We didn't know much about the nature center so we asked at the entrance before paying if there was an education center or things to do in the grounds. The employee wasn't very fluent in English but assured us that there was. Nope! It was just trails and fishing. We were there to learn about the preserve but there was not even signs on the grounds about the preserve. We were very disappointed and left. I felt ripped off since the locals get in free to fish but we were lied and paid. As for the preserve, the area was beautiful and that is the only redemption for this getting an average review.

I had never been here before despite driving by it hundreds of times. I went here to jog and was pleasantly surprised. There and several miles of trails that are near the water. You’ll see lots of birds, rabbits and squirrels. I only saw 2 or 3 other the entire time was I there. It closes around the time the sun goes down.

A park that is free if you have a Baytown address. I highly recommend going to this place and if you learn the background story you’ll appreciate even more.
