Blucher Park is a wonderful park right in the downtown Corpus Christi. It is nestled next to the Public Library with interesting views from the reading rooms of the library. Corpus Christi is a flyover as birds north in spring and south in fall. Plan...More

The location is surrounded by houses and buildings. It's such a small wood because the grond area of the park is a bit up and down and not really well maintained. There's a lot of green in the park and a small creek in the...More

This park is heavily wooded. I saw only homeless people at each entrance to the park. It was frightening. I drove around the entire park but did not dare get out of my vehicle.

The park is very small. It was very dark and dense. There were homeless people sleeping in the walkways. We didn't stay long.

Terrible place to visit, walkways are bad, a lot of slip, trip and falls. Transits hang around, some asking for change, dirty stream passing thru the park, and a very Threating atmosphere.

Corpus Christi is home to a wide variety of bird species and a stop for many more during migration. This small park and its scrubby trees offer excellent views of many. Since it's downtown, you may encounter some urban blight - most likely litter -...More

we were able to see some birds, it wasn't as birdy as I was hoping for. But we did get a Chimney Swift and a Chuck Wills Widow. But I would not suggest birding this area alone. Could be a little scary. But if you...More
