The Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve is an 80 Acre public nature preserve located in northwest Houston TX. The park’s main feature is the 40 acre Marshall Lake and surrounding 1.7 miles of paved trail. Additionally, the property is bordered to the south by Cypress Creek. Visitors enjoy a rustic hidden retreat within the highly developed Tomball Parkway (SH 249) area of northwest Harris County. The Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve land was donated to Harris County Precinct 4 by its’ namesake companies in Jan 2009 during the creation of the master planned mixed use development known as The Vintage. Plans are underway to connect this preserve’s property with Precinct 3’s 100 Acre Wood Nature Preserve on the west side of SH 249, ultimately becoming part of the Cypress Creek Greenway Trail.
