Comments: A good park for being in the middle of the Pasadena/Clear Lake area; has three loop trails that cover the different areas of park. I enjoy hiking down to the bayou and sitting on the bench for a while right next to the water. With a three dollar price for each adult you get 5 miles of hiking trails along with the reenactment area it is a good place to get out and away for a day. The only complaint I had was the amount of spiders that where out, it must have been there mating season or something, as the amount of spiders present was overwhelming and actually caused us to turn back on some of the trails.
