Tom Bass Park I and III have two massive parks in Pearland. The parks are lush with trees, grass and rolling hills. And each one is dotted with covered playgrounds for the kids and exercise stations for the adults (and a Ninja Warrior Course). Though they are both next to each other, these gorgeous parks have personalities all their own.
Tom Bass Park I is perfect for quiet walks with toddlers or a stroll along the paths and bridges. This park features a massive dog park, complete with doggie drinking fountains, entrances for larger dogs and obstacle courses.
One thing you can't miss is the cool footbridge that wraps around, goes up a small hill and ends in a little pavilion at the top of the hill. Here families are picnicking in the shade, enjoying the weather.
Nearby are a lot of swings, both bench swings and playground swings.
This park has quite a bit of parking available, so it's usually easy to find a spot.

Tom Bass III features a lake, ringed by a paved path. Complete with mile markers, it is a popular with runners and walkers.
Picnic tables and a small beach volleyball court make a nice park to visit for parties or get-togethers with other families.
Tom Bass Park III is also where you can find the new(er) Ninja Warrior Course! This permanent and public outdoor playground is a NFL themed ninja warrior course with 11 obstacles... complete with the timer button at the end.
Tom Bass I and III are next to each other, but you will have to drive out of one park to reach the other. Most people like to visit one or the other. Both are great places for families to hang out, and I love bringing my kids to these parks!
