George Bush Park is a 7,800 acre park in west Houston. It features plenty of jogging trails, as well as a paved biking trail. Many of the trails run alongside Buffalo Bayou.
The park also hosts two soccer fields, six baseball fields, and a playground. There is a dog park, a boardwalk overlooking Buffalo Bayou, and even a model airplane field, operated by Bayou City Flyers.
The American Shooting Centers reserves 563 acres of land near the southeast entrance for shooting. The center provides shooting fields, a gun rental/purchase shop and lessons.
The playground has some unique play structures, including one shaped like a boat, so kids can pretend to be sailors, or pirates, depending on which way their inclination lies.
This is a great park for kids of all ages – older kids can ride bikes on the bike trail, or play on the sports fields, while younger kids will enjoy the playground and swings.
George Bush Park is located at 16756 Westheimer Parkway, Houston, Texas 77082
