Spring is here and so is Jack Drake Park, a new park located at 641 Bradfield Rd. and nestled in the North Houston District with a beautiful walking trail to enjoy.
The park was named in honor of former longtime president of the Greater Greenspoint Management District (now known as the North Houston District) whose leadership was instrumental to the community.
The project has been a collaboration of the Greens Bayou Coalition and the North Houston District. Funding was made available by a Texas Parks & Wildlife grant, and construction for the project began in fall 2016.
The park was designed to preserve native plant species and provide habitat for urban wildlife.
This park is the trailhead for the Greens Bayou Trail, which is a Statewide Transportation Enhancement Program (STEP) trail project that serves as a link to several other parks in the North Houston District. It features native species and habitat restoration, and future plans include a canoe launch on Greens Bayou. A decomposed granite loop within the park allows patrons to observe wildlife while exercising their right to enjoy the great outdoors.
