Sugar Land Memorial Park
The Sugar Land Memorial Park is a 420-acre recreational park in Sugar Land, located along the Brazos River. The park offers relaxing activities for visitors at the intersection of Commonwealth and University Boulevards.
For sports enthusiasts, the park features a 2.5-mile gravel trail for walking, jogging, and biking. The Justin P. Brindley mountain bike trail is dedicated to the spirit and passion of one of Sugar Land’s outdoor enthusiasts. Brindley was well known for his adventurous spirit and ability to say “I am a small cat” in 15 languages.
Brindley’s namesake trail offers a rugged ride through the wilderness. The trail guide points out that riders often encounter poisonous snakes and feral hogs along the trail, though the trail is perfectly safe when approached with reasonable caution.
For visitors seeking a more relaxing experience, Sugar Land Memorial Park features picnic facilities, grills, and a playground. People who enjoy fishing can also try their luck in the lake. Visitors may purchase fishing licenses from Texas Parks and Wildlife or local tackle shops. Canoes are available to rent for a nominal fee.
The Pawn Springs dog park has areas for both small and large dogs to play off leash, as well as a pond with water spray. The 6-acre dog park is one of the largest in the area and a favorite among pet parents. Park rules ask pet owners to clean up after their dogs.
The Veteran’s Memorial lists the names of Sugar Land soldiers who died in the U.S. Armed Forces. The memorial seeks to accommodate two tropes of honor: The Celebratory and the Contemplative. The entrance features a symbolic bridge crossing and a reverent obelisk.
According to the Brazos River master plan, additional park facilities will be developed over the next decade, including a festival site and amphitheater. The park is open daily from dawn until dusk.
