Bear Creek Park Features
Visitors can enjoy plenty of free space with picnic tables galore!!! Additionally, Harris County allows reservations to be made to use any of the 8 pavilions. While there is no reservation cost, a refundable deposit is required. Restrooms are located throughout the park, although not along the equestrian & nature trails on the west side of the park. The east side of the park is something of a sports complex with numerous soccer fields, baseball & softball fields, tennis courts and horseshoe courts. Various sports clubs maintain these facilities and permission is needed prior to their use. The wildlife habitat and aviary (sometimes referred to as “Bear Creek Park Zoo”) houses rescued & rehabilitating animals of various sizes. The “zoo” is perfect for all ages, particularly smaller children as a playground is located just across War Memorial Dr.
Visitors should be aware that the park is subject to flooding at any time. The park is part of a federally owned reservoir and it is the priority of the Army Corps of Engineers to impound water when necessary.
