One of the great perks we have living in Kingwood is our beautiful parks. River Grove Park is one of my favorite places to go and enjoy nature. I marvel at the natural beauty of the tall Texas pines and old magnolia trees. Some of them are pretty massive.
I’ve seen several deer around the park and, depending on the time of day, they may be grazing across the bridge at the soccer fields. Of course, this is a natural habitat for an abundance of wildlife, including snakes. I’ve seen quite a few water snakes as well as copperheads so you definitely need to be aware they are here.
Coming to this park brings back beautiful memories of our three boys playing “captain” on the boat. They are now in their mid and late 20’s, but when I see that boat, I can still vision their excitement, laughing, and even arguing for their positions. I can’t tell you how many birthday parties we had there over the years. I sure do miss those days.
Located at the south end of Woodland Hills Drive, this 74-acre nature park offers the following amenities:
- boat ramp with access to Lake Houston
- fishing pier
- picnic areas with gazebos and grills
- playground area
- horseshoe court
- disc golf course
- workout area
