Parks and Recreation

2015 Spring and Summer Activity GuideIn Bryan, we say that we have The Good Life, Texas Style. Part of the reason is because we believe Bryan is a great place for families and kids.

We have cool parks and innovative recreational programs and camps to challenge kids of all ages.

Our parks system covers 43 properties totaling 750 acres. But it’s what we do with that turf that’s amazing: Sure, we have a bounty of baseball and soccer fields, but we also have inline hockey rinks, skateboard parks, splash pads, walking trails, two dozen pavilions for picnicking and reunions, and three terrific pools.

You’ll even find the unusual: We have a tremendous number of horseshoe pits for amateurs and pros alike. Even handicapped-accessible pits are easy to find. An indoor tennis facility? Ours is the only one in the region. We even make sure our annual Holiday Magic event features a snow hill for our powder-deprived residents. And a family camp out in a park? Yep, under the stars, by the campfire and making s’mores.

You can be anything you want to be in Bryan. Except bored.
