With an average of only 18 days per year with temperatures below freezing and 99.6 days with high temperatures falling in the 90s, nature enthusiasts know that Houston is a prime place to soak up the great outdoors.
Located northeast of downtown Houston—between Interstate 90 and Interstate 10—Jim and Joann Fonteno Family Park offers locals and visitors 33 lush acres of green space including picnic facilities, a loop path and garden scapes to enjoy 365 days a year.
Set among towering Pine trees and wetlands—in the middle of a neighborhood, parking lots and a strip mall in eastern Harris county—Fonteno Park delights with its traditional park offerings. There’s a covered pavilion for programmed activities, decked picnic areas crafted from recycled materials and pocket parks highlighting bird and butterfly gardens.
