We bike at this park weekly and I would say this is a Very good park.
Pros: It is very clean. It has 10 large covered pavilions that require reservations as well as 6 additional large covered pavilions that do not require reservations, they are on a first-come-first-served basis (all pavilion sites have grills and electrical plugs). There are 13 small picnic areas, some with grills, that do not require reservations. There are several playground areas for children to play in as well as a couple of multipurpose fields for baseball, kickball, soccer, or football. Plenty of jogging trails that we use as biking trails. It is located on the south portion of Lake Houston. There are three boat ramps for boating, water skiing, and jet skiing. We saw many people fishing off the boardwalk deck (not sure if fishing license is required). The park also gas a small duck pond and fishing pond. For dog lovers, this park has a dog park. Plenty of field space for throwing a frisbee or flying a kite. The main plus for us using this park is that there is a Sheriff's Office in the park, which gives us peace of mind. Hours of operation for summer 6 am - 9 pm / winter hours 6 am - 7 pm.
Opinions and Recommendations: This park is definitely the, to-go-park for family reunions, outside parties, family picnics, or for exercising or boating activities. There are many things to do and it will fit everyone's needs, even your dog if you have one. Out of all the parks in Houston, I would say that this park is probably the one with the most amenities. I would definitely recommend that you visit this park. I would also recommend that you visit the website for directions, rules, and regulations, in regards to alcoholic beverages, boating, fishing, or pavillion rental. http://hcp1.net/Parks/AlexanderDeussen.aspx for
