Part of the Addicks Reservoir, Bear Creek Pioneers Park was created in the 1940s by the Army Corps of Engineers to prevent a repetition of a flood that occurred in the area in 1935. In 1965, Harris County leased 2,154 acres of the reservoir to develop a park that now includes a lighted walking trail, an equestrian trail, a small zoo, soccer fields, tennis courts, little league and softball fields, picnic pavilions, horseshoe courts, and picnic tables. The park is named after one of the creeks that flows through the area. Although the area is subject to flooding, the majority of the land is dry most of the time.
