The park originally hosted a baseball field, pavilion, and lake.
Now, the park has two open air pavilions and one enclosed pavilion (available for rent), two lakes, playground, picnic tables with grills, and a newly improved 18-hole disc golf course. The park hosts the annual Easter Egg Hunts in the Spring and Sparks in the Park on July 4th of every year.
We have an abundance of wildlife living in the park – squirrels, raccoons, ducks, geese, fish, turtles, and alligators, to name a few. Visitors are encouraged to feed the ducks and geese, but do not feed the alligators. The alligators will become dependent upon humans for food, and then become aggressive when not fed. Once an alligator becomes aggressive, we must remove it from the park.
For more information on how to rent the buildings or park, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 979-323-1660 or visit us at 1217 Avenue J, Bay City, Texas.
