Parks & Trails

Quality and accessible greenspace is vital to the health and wellbeing of residents, wildlife, and communities. Precinct 4 oversees a system of 54 parks, 65 miles of park trails, and 8 community centers. Planning the future of parks and trails is a vital component of our work to make sure each resident in Precinct 4 has access to high-quality greenspaces. This area of our work includes park master plans, trail planning, and partnerships with local governments to improve access, connectivity, recreation, environmental resilience, and biodiversity. 

Harris County Precinct 4 Healthy Parks Plan

A 14-month effort starting in September 2023 that is a precinct-wide parks and trails plan focused on creating healthier and more equitable parks and greenspace system for residents of Precinct 4. This includes creating connectivity between parks, passive greenspace, and neighborhoods that will be supported by precinct-wide public engagement and data analysis to make for more equitable park access, enhance environmental vulnerability of communities adjacent to parks, improve physical and mental health with parks and greenspace, and leverage parks to improve socioeconomic outcomes.
