This 750-acre park on the northeast edge of the city is an oasis for hikers. Even though the park is surrounded by residential communities, its trails pass through bottomland hardwood forest containing live oak, black willow, and cypress. Hunting Bayou adds interest as it bisects the park. The bayou also attracts neotropical birds as they stop on their migration flights. Start the hike from the east side of the parking area, just past the gate at the asphalt maintenance road. Turn right, heading east. There are lights on the left side, allowing some hiking after dusk. Due to Hurricane Ike in September 2008 and extensive road construction on I-610 that divided the park, the former trail names are no longer applicable. Pass a few picnic tables on the right and then cross a short wooden bridge over a shallow gully.
