Cypress Park in Cypress, TX: Enchanting Attraction for All Ages

I live in Houston and have worked as a nurse. I have a lifelong passion for traveling, nature, and photography (preferably all together!).

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.

— Peter Gray

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.

— Herbert Hoover

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.

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!

Hi Rajan,

My husband and I truly enjoyed our time spent in Cypress Park. It is a bit of a drive from our home, but particularly nice for people who live in that neighborhood who can walk out their doors and have it right there. I love parks with water scenery such as they have there.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on October 10, 2020:

Beautiful place to visit with a lot of sun and fresh air. Truly worth visiting. Lovely pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Hi FlourishAnyway,

Walking is our preferred mode these days also. It is such a pretty setting at Cypress Park!

Hi Diana,

Cypress Park is particularly nice for those who live in walking distance of it. I could envision spending many hours there!

At first I thought it was a grown woman on the blue playground equipment photo and I was thrilled for her but then I saw I was looking at it wrong. This sounds like quite the adventurous place but I would not be doing chin ups or pull ups. No running either. Walking the paths is all they’d get out of me! But I’d love the natural setting there.

Hi Ann,

It puts people in a good frame of mind to be surrounded by so much natural beauty.

Diana Carol Abrahamson from Somerset West on April 15, 2020:

Wonderful park to visit to unwind, especially for those that need a change from their nine to five jobs.

Hi Liz,

We do have so many parks in our area that we have yet to visit them all.

Hi Bill,

Glad to be able to give you a better idea of what living in the Houston metro area is like for those of us who reside here.

Hi Ann,

We loved finding this park because of its immense beauty. Everyone appeared to be in a jovial mood because of it.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 15, 2020:

More beauty from a city I never associated with beauty.Thanks for the education and the beautiful pictures.
