Named for Houston professional engineer Paul D. Rushing who designed and coordinated a variety of area land development projects over three decades, this 232-acre park is a gem in the Katy Prairie.

In addition to a series of ballfields and clubhouses, Paul Rushing Park offers an abundance of other recreational opportunities. The Chain-of-Lakes wildlife habitat is a centerpiece. Covering more than 100 acres the area consists of a series of interconnected lakes of varying depths that provide the perfect habitat for native and seasonal birds. Summer birds include the black-bellied whistling duck and black-necked stilt. Fall brings shorebirds and waterfowl as well as hawks and sparrows. Bald eagles and crested caracarases also make stops here.

A half-dozen bird observation blinds and a small boardwalk offer more opportunities at the Chain-of-Lakes.
