Russ Pitman Park at the Nature Discovery Center – Visiting Houston’s Parks, One Week at a Time
UPDATE: See the renovation HERE!
Young kids love the crawl tubes, monkey bars, slides, climbing ladders and rock walls. The play area also has a sandbox, toddler swings and open space for playing.
The park is open 6:00am – 9:30pm daily and is free to visit. The Nature Discovery Center, housed in the Henshaw House is open Tuesday – Sunday, 12:00-5:30pm. Restrooms are available in the Nature Discovery Center, during open hours. If you are looking for more fun, Evergreen Park is right across the street.
I recommend you grab your city kids and take them for an outdoor adventure at Russ Pitman Park. Pack a picnic, explore the trails, find the animals, take some pictures, play on the playground and visit the Nature Discovery Center. And it’s all free!
