Wolf Pen Creek Park and Amphitheater was developed as the first phase of the Wolf Pen Creek Corridor Master Plan. This plan was approved by the College Station City Council in 1998. The goal of the comprehensive plan was to recognize the interrelationships of drainage, erosion control, and recreation along Wolf Pen Creek, as well as to create a community attraction for residents and out-of-town guests.
The park offers a variety of outdoor recreation experiences for all ages including walking, picnicking, and playground activities. The Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater offers a wide array of entertainment with outdoor concerts, plays and festivals. It may also be rented for private parties. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Nina Heard Astin Trust provided partial funding for this project. In 2001, a family of bronze wolves found a permanent home in the park. "Wilderness Awakened", located on the Holleman Drive side of the park, was designed by artist Payne Lara, who also designed the sculpture located at the College Station Police and Fire Departments. Additional walk/bike trails with two observation decks and landscaping were completed in 2003
In 2007, the Plaza, a smaller scale outdoor facility for concerts and parties as well as the Green Room, an indoor beautiful structure, suitable for banquetes and meetings were added to the Wolf Pen Creek Park and Amphitheater.
