Deer Park is home to 21 city parks. These community spaces include everything from small playgrounds to large green areas. Our most prominent area, Dow Park, is a 40-acre space featuring sports facilities, a community pool, a splash park, and a pavilion with seating areas. A gym and a mile-long jogging trail are available on-site for fitness enthusiasts, and horticulture lovers will enjoy the Dow Park Rose Garden. Other parks include 18 separate playgrounds, picnic tables, and multiple walking trails.
Here at Deer Park we are devoted to providing outdoor space for our residents. Whether you’re interested in fitness or play, or just hoping for a bit of fresh air and sun, you’ll find it in Deer Park. For those who are interested in getting involved, we offer Adopt-a-Spot. Geared toward organizations and citizens, this program allows residents to care for a section of the community green space.
Please pardon our mess as we begin to renovate the Bayou Bend Playground. You will notice orange safety fence around some of the trees. This is to protect those trees from root damage as heavy equipment is brought into to the park to complete these projects.
