Here is the second installment of this three part series, where we will look at places that parents can take their younger kids for a day out.
With over 50 different parks in College Station, you are never far away from an afternoon of fun. Each park offers a different set of activities for the family to enjoy, such as: jungle gyms, slides, swings, basketball courts, baseball/softball courts, walking trails, and even disc golf. With so much to do, it is no wonder the city takes such pride in their parks. The College Station Parks and Recreation Department’s mission statement pretty much says it all about their parks, “To provide a diversity of facilities and leisure services which are geographically and demographically accessible to our citizens.”
1. Anderson Park– This park was initially created to alleviate the overcrowding of soccer fields in College Station. It now contains five youth soccer fields of various sizes, along with two basketball courts, a playground, a shelter with rest rooms, and parking for 30 cars. With tons of room, this is the perfect place for the kids to go and get plenty of exercise and sun!
2. Lemontree Park– There is plenty to do here, with a half basketball court, girl’s lighted softball fields, ¾ mile concrete jogging exercise trail, playground, open play area that is great for football or soccer, picnic units, pedestrian bridge, and a 30 car parking lot. There is even a nature trail that leads right through the disc golf course!
3. Wolf Pen Creek Park & Amphitheater– Come here during the day and enjoy the 9 hole disc golf course, playgrounds, and bike/walking trails that lead all through the park. Also, keep an eye out for showtime listings, and bring the whole family to come enjoy a live concert or performance while relaxing on the hill.
Next time, we will look at some of the Entertainment Facilities around town that are great for the kids.
