Duhacsek Park Community Center
Duhacasek Park is one of the newest parks in Sugar Land. It was the home of Walter and Virginia Duhacsek, who donated their homestead to the city. They lived on the property from 1956 until Virginia passed away in 2004. The park is quickly becoming a popular spot for outdoor group gatherings.
The city’s goal is to redevelop the park to host Boy Scout, Girl Scout, YMCA, and other youth activities. The city of Sugar Land added baseball, softball, and volleyball fields to enhance the property’s recreational appeal before opening to the public in 2009. The property is now well equipped to host family reunions, field trips, retreats, and church gatherings.
Duhacasek Park features 50 acres of hand-grafted pecan trees and plenty of open spaces for group meetings. One of the pecan trees is the third-largest in Texas—a point of pride for the Duhacseks. Much of the property is wooded, making it ideal for nature walks and quiet reflection. The city added a quarter-acre pond during initial park renovations to enhance the beauty and appeal of the property.
For a nominal fee, groups can rent the Duhacsek’s entire house, complete with kitchen and meeting rooms. The house has small rooms available for group activities, seminars, and projects. Sugar Land residents receive a discount on rental fees with a valid ID and water bill. Residents must live within Sugar Land’s corporate city limits to receive the discount. The house’s maximum occupancy is 30, but the park accepts reservations for up to 40 people.Duhacsek Park Community Center is located at the intersection of Voss Road and Old Richmond Road. It is open daily from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
