Parks, Club facilities, and Nature Areas

     "Landlubbers" take heart! For those who prefer dry land, the area also boasts nine golf courses. Landscaped public parks offer hiking trails, tennis facilities, picnic areas, playgrounds and ball fields.

     Camping is great in Texas. Nearby, in our own Houston area, you will find quality camping facilities administered by federal, state and local government authorities. Three camping and RV parks also serve the local area. For area locations contact the Texas Department of Transportation, Travel and Information Division. (P.O. Box 5064, Austin, TX 78763).

      Nature lovers will be fascinated with the nature trails, hiking and exhibits at the Armand Bayou Nature Center, the largest urban wildlife refuge and wilderness preserve in the United States. The center offers over 2000 acres of bayou, forest, and prairie that is refuge for over 360 species of animals and birds. Guided tours and special activities are offered throughout the year. Also at Armand Bayou is the Jimmy Martyn Farm, a re-created 1800's working farm where both children and adults go back in time to discover how things were done on the farm a century ago. Nearby is the Bayou Wildlife Park, a private animal reserve with 86 acres of natural habitat. Located between Dickinson and Alvin, it houses a variety of birds and exotic wildlife roaming freely through prairies and woods. Take tram rides through the park with frequent stops to meet and feed the animals while your guide delivers educational talks.
