PARK DETAILS
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 1988. 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, fishing, 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. Partial funding for this project was provided by the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, Project No. 20-00328, in the amount of $500,000.00, and the Nina Heard Astin Trust, in the amount of $100,000.00. In 2001, a family of bonze wolves found a permanent home in the park. “Wilderness Awakened”, located on the Holleman Drive was designed by artist Payne Lara, who also designed the sculptures located at the College Station Police & Fire Departments. Extensive trail development, landscaping and observation decks were added by Public works department as part of the greenways project in 2003. April of 2005 another 1/2 mile trail development, was completed with bridges, parking spaces, drinking fountains, picnic unit and landscaping.
