This permanent and public outdoor playground is a NFL themed ninja warrior course with 11 obstacles... complete with the timer button at the end. We go from Houston park to Houston park, making playgrounds into ninja courses... but Tom Bass Park actually has a ninja course!
In addition to the ninja warrior course, you can race your friends at the 40 yard dash... and have it timed just by standing on the starting line.
So we raced and competed and were completely hot and tried when we finished our afternoon at the park. Tom Bass has several playgrounds, and most seem to be shaded... but the ninja course is in full sun.
In addition to the ninja course, there are is a lot more to do.
Tom Bass Park has three sections, with several playgrounds, picnic areas, trails, fishing and sports fields. There is also a public golf course and a performance pavilion.
Section I and II are big and seem to be a little less busy... but with good playgrounds and picnic spots. Section III is busier with the Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course and traditional playgrounds. Plus there is a trail around the water and spots to fish.
Tom Bass Park has free parking and restrooms.
