Things to do in Houston’s Energy Corridor This Fall
Fall is officially here in Houston’s Energy Corridor and the start of the new season brings a new wave of excitement both to the local real estate market and to the calendar! Whether you’re new to the area and have just begun your home search or have called the Energy Corridor home for years, there are many ways to explore our community, from visiting a new park to spending the day at a museum!
As your local real estate experts, the KW Energy Corridor Team has included several things to do in Houston’s Energy Corridor this fall:
Visit the park
It’s a wonderful time of year to get out and explore the dozens of parks nearby! Take a stroll through one of the following parks in the Memorial/Energy Corridor District:
- Bear Creek Pioneers Park— complete with walking trails, equestrian trails, soccer and softball fields, playgrounds, tennis courts, horseshoe courts, picnic tables, grills, pavilions, and even a small zoo with ducks, geese, peacocks, donkeys, ostrich and bison!
- Congressman Bill Archer Park— located opposite of Bear Creek Pioneers Park, this Houston destination features a 17-acre 0ff-leash dog park for dogs of all sizes, a skate park, hiking and biking trails.
- George Bush Park— This large 7,800 acre park includes a soccer field, baseball fields, shooting range, playgrounds, pavilions, ponds, biking and jogging trails.
- Nottingham Park— Not only does this Houston park offer playgrounds, a cricket field, disc golf course, lighted tennis courts, pavilions, picnic area, and a 3/4 mile crushed granite walking trail, but its splash park is one of the largest in the Houston area and makes it a great place to take the kids! Nottingham Park has even earned the reputation as a “Kid Fit Park!”
Take a hike (or bike!)
If you planned on hiking or biking all summer, you haven’t missed your chance! Fall is the perfect time to set out on one of the Energy Corridor’s many trails! Grab your shoes and hit one of the biking or hiking trails at these Houston area parks:
