PARK DETAILS
This park was established as part of land negotiations to create a city industrial park. The site has a variety of plant and animal species indigenous to this area. The park currently offers several miles of trails and provides an excellent opportunity for hiking, cycling, bird watching, equestrian activities and nature study. In February of 1998, the City of College Station passed the Lick Creek Park Master Plan which established an improved trail system, new entrance drive, parking lot, visitor center and outdoor classroom facilities.

In February of 2016, College Station City Council approved the contract to begin construction for the Nature Center. The Nature Center will be a focal point for the park and will have a strong educational component. The facility features include indoor and outdoor classrooms, an amphitheater, native plant displays, a monarch butterfly garden and much more — along with parking that will accommodate school groups. Completion date is set for summer 2017.
