Brazos Bend State Park Summer Programs

BRAZOS BEND STATE PARK – SUMMER ACTIVITIES

Brazos Bend State Park is rated a top Texas State Park for several reasons. Its nearly 5000 acres is teaming with wildlife that inhabits tall-grass coastal prairie, bottomland hardwood forest and a variety of wetland habitats. Not only home to the American alligator, the park is home to a vast array of bird, mammal, reptile, and amphibian species.

The park normally offers at least 3 free interpretive programs every Saturday and Sunday. This year during the month of June 2015, staff and volunteers will offer weekday programs, hikes and demonstrations most weekdays Tuesday through Friday. Visitors can also take advantage of the top-rated Nature Center exhibits including live snake and baby alligator educational encounters, touch table exhibits, crocodilians of the world, wetlands, forest and prairie exhibits. The center is open daily from 11:00am – 3:00pm Monday – Friday and 9:00am – 5:00pm Saturday and Sunday.

Park Naturalist Sharon Hanzik tells us that programs and hikes will cover various topics from alligators to owls. “The best time to view alligators and other wildlife during the heat of the summer months is early in the morning and late in the evening”, says Hanzik. Park gates open at 8:00am and close at 10:00pm.

Campsites with primitive amenities all the way up to water/electric and shelters are available for rent. Reservations recommended. The park offers several miles of hiking/biking and equestrian trails. Please remember to take plenty of water for you and your pet and don’t forget the trail map available at park headquarters and the nature center.

Take home a souvenir of your visit from either or both of the gift shops. The non- profit volunteer operated shop is located inside the nature center and the state park store is located inside the park headquarters.
