Katy families can enjoy an afternoon of fun and relaxation
Bear Creek Park is a great way to have fun with friends and family, especially on weekends and when the weather is beautiful.Â The park provides over 2,000 acres of picnic areas, walking and nature trails, and playgrounds.
Most of the sports venues (baseball and soccer) are used by sports teams that have signed up for the spaces in advance. However, when not in use by teams, families have been known to play their own games in these fields.
Picnic areas are spread out far enough apart that hundreds of families and large gatherings can share the park without tripping over each other. They include picnic tables, grills, garbage cans, restroom facilities, and wide-open, grassy areas for spreading out blankets – or for simply running around.
There are eight pavilions that can be reserved in advance for large parties. These covered picnic areas include multiple picnic tables, a large barbecue pit, electrical outlets, and a water hose connection. To rent for the entire day, the park administration asks for a $125 check in advance when reserving the space. The money is fully refundable provided the person reserving the space cleans up afterward and providing no damage is left behind. To reserve one of the pavilions, contact Kacie Davis at the Parks Administration Office. The phone number is 281-496-2177 or send an e-mail to Pct3Parks@hctx.net.
Bear Creek Park is open to the public daily from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. It’s located at 3535 War Memorial Drive, but is also accessible from Highway 6, and Clay Road.
