Places to Hang #001: Sugar Land Memorial Park
Overlooking the Brazos River, Sugar Land Memorial Park is a very peaceful place to setup a hammock and enjoy the muddy river. While it took some difficulty (and slightly scraped palms), it is accessible to anyone with an adventurous spirit.
How To Get There
Address of parking lot:
15300 University Blvd
Sugar Land, TX 77479
Cost of admission: $0
- Enter into the parking lot and take the roundabout loop toward the “Pawm Springs Dog Park.” It is actually the best place to park since it is closer to the river than the main lot.
- Walk from the parking lot along the gravel trail towards the river (Yellow star is the entrance)
- The entrance is basically a 10 foot trimmed trail that opens up to the river. From here you have to climb down the dirt to get close to the river. WARNING: when we went, the dirt was loose! Very dangerous if you are not climbing carefully.
- Head north up the river bank until you get to two trees where a hammock can be setup
This was a great and relaxing place to hang. My only complaint is that the slope of the hill makes it difficult to find a comfortable distance off the ground for the hammock. On one side of the hammock you will be 1 foot from the dirt and the other side 3-4 feet.
Happy hanging Houston!
