Memorial/Energy Corridor

The land occupied by Terry Hershey Park was acquired by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the 1940s.   Located along the banks of Buffalo Bayou and South Mayde Creek, the park spans 500 acres and features some of the nicest on and off-road bike trails in Texas. There is a walk-in sundial where your shadow will tell you the time if you stand on the appropriate stone (and if the sun is shining).
