Texas spring is in full bloom this April, and the weather lately has been way too beautiful to waste the day binge watching Netflix indoors. College Station has awesome places to enjoy the great outdoors and take part in some fun spring activities. Below is our guide to all things spring and outdoorsy.
Interested in Frisbee Golf? The course at Research Park is often busy on beautiful days but College Station has more disc golf courses than you might know about. Lemontree Park, Oaks Park, Wolf Pen Creek Park, and Southern Oaks Park all have disc golf courses for you to enjoy. Avoid the crowd at Research Park and try out of these courses instead!
For a more relaxing activity, try hammocking or picnicking at the park. Spence Park by Kyle Field is a great place for people watching. Set up your hammock and enjoy some PB&J’s while taking in the sights and sounds found in the heart of Texas A&M’s campus. If you are looking for a more quaint environment, venture on out to Lake Bryan. Lake Bryan has a beautiful view and is big enough to accommodate a lot of visitors. You can choose to picnic by the lake or take some walking trails to find a secluded area with plenty of trees perfect for hanging up your hammock. Grab some friends and sing songs around a campfire or play touch football with one of the prettiest views Bryan/College Station has to offer.
With summer just around the corner, maybe you are looking for a place to work out and get that body ready for swimsuit season. Whether you like to walk or run, College Station has a bunch of trails that you should explore. Lick Creek Park has several miles of trails and is perfect for hikers, cyclists, and runners. If you are interested in bird-watching, Lick Creek Park is also known for having a wide variety of birds. Bee Creek Park is another spacious area with over 18-acres filled with trails, playgrounds, a swimming pool, tennis courts, and more. No matter your favorite outdoor activity, Bee Creek Park is the place for you!
