Adrian Garcia, Harris Co. Precinct 2 Commissioner

Parks and trails in Precinct 2 provide opportunities for communities to safely come together, play, exercise, and connect with nature.

Now more than ever, parks are a vital resource for all residents.

In order to ensure that open spaces in the Precinct meet the community’s needs for years to come, Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia’s office is working with community members and key stakeholders to develop a long-term vision and a near-term plan for priority investments in parks and trails. Through a collaborative process involving in-depth community engagement, research, and analysis, the Parks and Trails Plan will outline how the parks and trails system will best serve the diverse communities in Precinct 2, including an examination of existing parks and trails, recommendations for new and improved facilities, and the development of clear goals and objectives for the future of the parks and trails system.

Precinct 2 maintains and operates over 3,800 acres of parks and 27 miles of trails, providing residents and visitors with many different opportunities for exercise and recreation.

Precinct 2 is very diverse! 60% of Precinct 2 residents are of Hispanic origin, 27% are White, 9% of residents are Black, 2% are Asian, and 2% are another race.

Parks and trails in Precinct 2 have a variety of amenities to meet community needs. For instance, Sylvan Beach Park has a playground, beaches, picnic areas, a fishing pier, boat ramp, an air-conditioned pavilion, and wifi!
