Place To Visit Category: Parks
Telge Park is a 111 Acre Harris County park located in Cypress, TX just northwest of Houston. Located on the northern bank of Cypress Creek, a majority of the property is a wetland habitat with abundant wildlife. At first glance the park may seem to most as a small neighborhood park. Only upon trekking through the natural surface walking trails will visitors fully appreciate its’ large size. Visitors should be aware that much of the park’s land is in the floodplain and is prone to flooding during big rain events. A TX Historical Commission sign is located on this site, marking it as the homesite of early Republic of TX settlers.

Telge Park Features
In addition to the natural setting of the densely wooded acreage, the park boasts picnic areas, a paved walk, a playground and restrooms. One picnic area is covered, however, the entire park is shaded by well established trees. A cleared and well maintained area is the perfect setting for setting up a volleyball net, frisbee, spreading a blanket or just letting the kids/dogs run. The main 0.75 mile nature trail is reported to have been made by a boy scout troop, but several less marked trails branch off and even wind down to the creek where fishing is allowed. The main amenities are fenced off from the park’s small parking lot and adjacent street, keeping little ones from roaming into traffic. Street parking is also available along Pleasant Grove Rd.
