Toubin Park is a tiny pocket park in downtown Brenham that has an old water cistern with several signs to read about the history of water cisterns. Interesting place and does not take much time to go there.

This little park, sandwiched between two buildings, provides a historical overview of Brenham's cistern system. It's well done, but I doubt it would be of interest to young children.

This is an incredible park tucked away in downtown Brenham. It's centered around the cistern in the park. Brenham innovated when it came to public, clean water with their system of cisterns. The park has a number of history displays that discuss cistern history along...More
