Steelhead Park, a breath taking park right along Highway 16 in Houston that should not be missed. Hard work is put into the park everyday and it shows. From June to September the flowers are in bloom and the park looks amazing.
Every Summer I take the time to stroll through the area to look at the new flowers. With a playground for children and the calming sound of the Steelhead Fountain it is the perfect place to go with the family or by yourself.
At the end of the park, near the visitor center, the world’s largest free standing fly rod can be found. The Fly rod is definitely picture worthy and everyone can walk right up and pose with it. If you continue to the Visitor Center you can see the massive grizzly, caught only minutes outside of the Houston town limits.
If you are passing through Houston I highly encourage a stroll through the Park to stretch cramped legs and breathe fresh air. If you live in Houston come enjoy what your town offers. It's worth your time, every time.
