Loving life at Oyster Creek Park Photo by @my_omi_one
One of Sugar Land’s most iconic parks, Oyster Creek, offers its visitors a three-mile hike and bike trail but with some added fun. This park spans more than 100 acres of land bejeweled with stunning water features, a rock-lined pond that makes for a great backdrop, public art for a creative touch, unique statues to pose with, and a bridge to look over the entire landscape so you can stay fit and have fun!

Sugar Land Memorial Park is a vast open area that is quite literally a breath of fresh air. It stands along the Brazos River encompassing almost 150 acres of land with 2.5 miles of hiking. You’ll have access to drinking fountains, benches, pavilions, and restrooms as you walk or bike along the Justin P. Brindley Trail and enjoy beautiful views of the river. But the Sugar Land Memorial Park has so much more to offer! As you and your pet explore the park, you’ll find a colorful garden that attracts beautiful butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, and other wildlife all year long for you to see and photograph. And, if you’re in the mood to kayak, canoe, or go fishing, you can do that on the lake. But, before you leave, be sure to get a closer look at the Remembrance Tower and bronze eagle statue - the hero features of the park honoring those who sacrificed their lives in service of the country.

Conveniently located right next to Sugar Land Memorial Park is Pawm Springs. This might be your pet’s favorite place in the entire city because it is made especially for your pet to have fun and make some canine pals! Pamper your pet with this resort-style park and watch them have the time of their life! If your pet gets scared easily, don’t worry: this park has an enclosed area for small doggies and a shade pavilion. And if your furry friend likes to splash around, bring a beach towel and unleash them at the pond and palm tree water spray feature and watch as they enjoy themselves.
