With an average of only 18 days per year with temperatures below freezing and 99.6 days with high temperatures falling in the 90s, Houston’s nature enthusiasts know that there’s no better city to soak up the great outdoors.
Located southeast of downtown Houston—between Space Center Boulevard and Red Bluff Road, along the shores of Armand Bayou—Bay Area Park offers visitors and their four-legged friends a vibrant green space to enjoy 365 days a year.
Head to the area and enjoy a variety of playground structures, picnic tables and barbecue pits, as well as a botanical garden and hiking trails that wind through lush oak trees. Tennis courts, baseball, softball fields and canoe ramps are also key highlights at Bay Area Park.
Bring your pup, too, and let ‘em loose at the precinct’s first dog park, which is fenced in and divided into two sections—one for small (under 20 pounds) and another for large dogs. The facility features wash bays, trails, fountains and plenty of open space for pups to explore.
Bay Area Park is open daily from 7AM to 10PM.
