A great thing about Bryan/College Station is that the sister cities’ governance actively tries to preserve as much of natural setting as it can. They’re both developing fairly rapidly, which is great for residents and business owners. What’s even better for residents is that the cities highly value some of the features it began with, like the beautiful trees and the wonderful landscape.
Some of the nature reserves in the Bryan/College Station area are not very well known, even among residents– like the Texas A&M Horticulture gardens. Off South College Road, is a small street called Hensel; here you’ll find a small school and a garden tended by Texas A&M students and faculty. It’s a really lovely place, covered with flowers, trees, vines weaving lattices, and spring is the perfect time of year to see it.
The city of College Station website alone lists 53 different parks, some as many as 500 acres, like Lick Creek Park. The city of Bryan has its own slew of parks and recreational activities, including water parks and imported snow slides at certain times of year.
The Wolf Pen Creek Park is a huge network of trails and nature reserves that even has an amphitheater for festivals and music performances. In fact, Willie Nelson and .38 Special are schedule to perform April 23rd and 24th. It promises to be a really memorable performance and tons of fun for anyone.
Anyone looking to escape street lights and paved roads for a change of scenery would not have to travel far. No matter where you are in the Bryan/College Station area, there is likely a park or nature trail within 15 minutes. Many of the parks are close enough to walk to, and many are larger and more remote; Bryan/College Station values both, depending on what sort of experience you’re looking for.
