Bear Branch Park

Bear Branch Park is located adjacent to The Woodlands Recreation Center. Bear Branch Park is both a dog friendly park and a wheel friendly park. Public water sources are available and are BYOD (bring your own dish) for our canine friends. Bear Branch Park also has a pool. The Bear Branch Park Dog Friendly area is 2+ very shady acres, and it is separated into two sections, one for large dogs, and a second area for small dogs. The Woodlands Community Association approved a new design-build plan for the community-wide skate facility in late 2009 which includes rails, ramps, a planter, benches, and a fire hydrant to mimic a street setting. The facility also includes in-ground concrete bowls and above ground concrete plazas. Bear Branch is the largest skate park in The Woodlands, and is designed for intermediate to advanced skaters. Bear Branch Sports Park is directly across Research Forest Drive (south) and features an 18 hole Frisbee Golf Course.
