PARK DETAILS
Art & Myra Bright Park, formerly known as Raintree Park, was renamed in 2015 in honor of the Bright family. The Bright’s have been long time residents of College Station and were the first family to live in the Raintree subdivision.  Both Art and Myra have been instrumental in donating their time and resources to several community organizations. Mr. Bright spend 54 years in the College Station School District as a teacher, coach and administrator.

Designed to complement the surrounding neighborhood, Art & Myra Bright Park provides a good example of park planning that integrates urban park facilities with a natural low-land ecosystem. This park boasts many natural amenities such as Wolf Pen Creek, sharp slopes, and 50’ water oaks. Developed facilities include a playground, shelter, picnic units and a seating area with benches. Development funding was through the 1981 bond issue. Renovations in 1992 include, concrete trails for walking or jogging. A new swing set & playground were installed in 2001.
