I live in Houston and love writing reviews of the local restaurants I visit with family and friends.
Cypress Park is a Beauty!
The 165-acre Cypress Park is stunning in its beauty, usability, and functions to provide an environment pleasing to young and old alike. The address is 12925 North Eldridge Parkway, Cypress, Texas 77429.
On the day that my husband and I first visited this beautiful location, we had initially seen Maxwell Park also for the first time. Both parks are pleasing to nature lovers, but while Maxwell Park is small and intimate, Cypress Park is expansive and satisfies people who wish to wish to do more exercising and have playground equipment for their children.
The playground equipment is located to the front of the park where there is a large paved parking lot. In this same area are picnic tables, barbeque grills, restrooms, water fountains and some shade structures.
Give childhood back to children: If we want our offspring to have happy, productive and moral lives, we must allow more time for play, not less.

The Trail in Cypress Park
A paved trail encircles large lake-like water retention ponds with a bridge bisecting the water.
The flat paved trail accommodates walkers, joggers, people riding bicycles, or on rollerblades as well as people in wheelchairs. Many people were walking their dogs on leashes. Benches are provided in many places along the trail for those who wish to rest and perhaps take some time to enjoy the delightfulness of the natural scenery surrounding them.
Cypress Park Exercise Equipment
Exercise stations are also placed at intervals on the trail. I cannot think of a more lovely setting to do chin-ups, pushups, and the like.
Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.
Fishing in Cypress Park
We saw several people fishing on the day of our visit, plus some wild birds attempting to snag their catch of the day.
Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.

Peace and Tranquility
There is one subdivision that abuts one side of Cypress Creek to the front of the park. Those are some fortunate people who live there! Just steps away from their front door are the many acres of this lovely park providing natural views of wildlife, including numerous kinds of birds, turtles, and the like.
What a great place to walk their dogs, let their children play and enjoy the natural wooded scenery, water views, and get to view sunrises and sunsets.
“Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.”
— Indra Devi
Harris County Precinct 3 Park
Cypress Park is open from 7 AM to Dusk. If you visit this Harris County Precinct 3 Park, I am confident that you will enjoy it as much as we did and plan to again in the future. It is marvelous that places like this exist in our vast metropolitan area!
