Cullinan Park - A Secret Gem in Sugar Land


Looking to stumble upon a birdwatching paradise? Located on the west side of Highway 6, also known as Addicks-Howell Road, between Voss and Highway 90A, is Cullinan Park. A park that is known as a top destination for many birding and wildlife enthusiasts. It’s also the perfect place to go hiking, fishing, kayaking, and have a picnic under the shade. Additionally, the park features a beautiful observation tower which is the perfect place to embrace this outdoor beauty and capture images. Great place to bring a scope if you have one.
