Fall is upon us and what better way to celebrate than participating in Friday’s National Visit a Park Day. The National Recreation and Parks Association encourages you to visit and enjoy a local, state, regional or national park.

The event is designed to motivate you to take advantage of the recreation and education available in our parks to spark healthy habits, renew a sense of appreciation for nature and community, and inspire a lifetime of enjoyment.

The City of College Station’s nationally-recognized Parks & Recreation Department offers a variety of learning, recreation and leisure activities for all ages. Our 52 developed parks are loaded with fun-filled amenities, and we invite you to jog or hike our nature trails, fish one of our stocked ponds, or get involved in our sports or community programs.
