Bear Creek Park – Visiting Houston’s Parks, One Week at a Time
This place is enormous so I printed out a copy of this MAP before we headed out.
When the kids were ready to move on we visited the conveniently located restrooms (the soap dispenser was empty though, so bring hand sanitizer) then walked across the street to see the wildlife habitat and aviary.
The kids enjoyed looking at the animals then we continued along the sidewalk past the bison enclosure to get to the aviary. At the two buildings of the aviary we saw birds of prey, including two kinds of owls, a peacock, a parrot, and several other kids of birds. Our favorite was the Moluccan Cockatoo because it whistled and said “hello” when we talked to it.
There was more fun equipment for ages 2-5 and 5-11 in the second playground. After the kids played here for a while they were hot, tired and hungry. I had planned to take the kids to the natural trail and the horseshoe courts before we left, but decided to head out while everyone was still in a good mood.
We’ll go back to explore more on another day!
