Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center preserves the Native American and pioneer lifestyles commonly found along the banks of Cypress and Spring creeks during the late 1700s and early 1800s. Natural beauty and history are combined in this unique setting located along the banks of Spring Creek. Jones Park is a window into a fast floodplain forest habitat.
Explore diverse ecosystems, including ancient cypress bogs, natural white sand beaches, and wildflower meadows. A variety of guided tours and free programming are offered ranging from the lifestyles and customs of local Indian tribes and pioneer settlers to the environmental benefits of this ecosystem.
The playground at Jones Park resembles a frontier fort nestled among towering native trees. Slides, tunnels, swings, and play decks provide exciting and challenging opportunities for children to develop their imagination and physical well-being. Surrounded by 26 picnic tables and an 80-seat pavilion, this playground complex is a family favorite for children of all ages and abilities.
