This has to be one of the Houston area's best parks!
Just down the road from Space Center Houston is Clear Lake Park. This huge park is right on the water and has four big playgrounds (with amazing equipment), a splashpad, picnic pavilions, sports fields, a museum and more!
There are monkey bars and wheels and nets for the ninjas and little structures for the little kids. One side also has ramps for kids of all abilities.
Maybe the most unusual thing was the net the was on hinges... so it swayed as the kids climbed it!
The only trick is that with all the equipment, it's a little difficult to supervise, so you need to follow around little kids rather than sit and watch.
We had not been to this park for a while, and I had forgot just how fun it was. It's beautiful on the water and all my kids (11, 9, 7 and 2) loved playing.
The equipment is in great condition and there are restrooms (but we did not use them).
There is just a little shade on the playgrounds... so bring your sunscreen and hats!
