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 east of downtown Houston—near the Interstate 90 and Beltway 8 interchange—Gene Green Beltway 8 Park offers locals and visitors 250 acres of fun-filled activities and state-of-the-art equipment to enjoy year round.
Among the environmentally-friendly area’s most popular features are a kiddie spray park, tennis and basketball courts, a BMX freestyle course, dog runs, paved trails, an amphitheater and well-equipped skate park. Everything from the lighting to the water flow that runs through the park was made from recycled materials and designed to conserve resources.
Gene Green Park is open daily from 7AM to 9:30 PM. The kiddie spray park is open from the first Saturday in April to the last Saturday of October.
