Brison Park, formerly known as Dexter Park, was renamed in 1980 in honor of Fred Brison. Brison was Mayor Pro Tem on the 1971-1974 College Station City Council, and a member of the Texas A&M University Horticultural Faculty for 43 years. The park is a beautifully wooded green space, protected from development by deed restrictions. The park has a 1/3-mile nature/bike trail and parking for 10 cars. A seasonal stream runs the length of the park.
In honor of the 12 Texas A&M students who lost their lives during the 1999 bonfire collapse, the City of College Station dedicated an individual lamp post and marker for each victim. Parking is available on the west side of the park, where you will find the main memorial plaque.Location: 400 Dexter
