PARK DETAILS
This park was established in 1987 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, including the endangered Navasota Ladies. The park offers five 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.

Residents overwhelmingly approved the $2.1 million Lick Creek Park Nature Center as part of the 2008 bond election. The design was approved in 2014, but construction was delayed until an adequate water line could be installed for fire protection. In February of 2016, College Station City Council approved the contract to begin construction for the Nature Center.

Completed in 2017, the Nature Center serves as the focal point of the picturesque park. As the area’s premier nature preserve. The facility features a meeting room, restrooms, indoor and outdoor classrooms, and an amphitheater available to rent for receptions, classes, meetings and more. Additional improvements and amenities have enhanced one of College Station’s favorite recreational areas and made it more accessible — and enjoyable — for young and old alike.
