Meyer Park is a large, 180-acre park located in Spring, Texas along the Cypress Creek. It is home to differing sports fields, fishing areas, an archeological site, and it is an entryway to the Gourley Nature Trail, which connects Meyer Park to Collins Park. The park is open from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily. Meyer Park is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
A significant area in Meyer Park is the Cypress Creek Archeological Site. During a maintenance project performed by the Harris County Flood Control District to reinforce Cypress Creek in 2006, artifacts were discovered along the banks of the creek. Per state and federal law, the site needed to be investigated. Through the investigations, Native American artifacts, predominately tools and pottery, were discovered at the site. The Archeological site is 6.8 acres, and a total of 2,457 artifacts were discovered on location.
For the outdoorsman, Meyers Park has year-round fishing opportunities. Among the fishing opportunities is a three-acre lake designated explicitly for fishing. No swimming or watercraft are allowed in the lakes and ponds located in Meyer Park. Typically, people can catch Black Bass, Bluegill, Channel Catfish, and Rainbow Trout in the lakes with many other possibilities in Cypress Creek. Furthermore, Meyer Park has trail systems throughout the park. This includes both paved and unpaved trails.
Meyer Park contains 26 soccer fields, 10 of which are lighted fields, and is the primary location for a local sports club, the Klein Soccer Club. Additionally, the park has two unlit softball diamonds and a basketball court. Beyond the sports facilities, Meyer Park possesses many general park features. There are picnic areas and barbeque grills, as well as barbeque pavilions that can be reserved for events. Additionally, Meyer Park houses age-specific playground areas to round out the family fun.
