Phase IV - Spring Creek Greenway Trail

The design stage of Phase IV of the Spring Creek Greenway trail, which will run from Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center to Highway 59 at the San Jacinto River, is nearly complete. When constructed, this section will add another 2 miles to the existing trail. Construction is expected to begin within 18 months.

Drinking Fountains

Drinking fountains will soon be installed at the Spring Creek Greenway trailheads at Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center and Dennis Johnston Park, with completion projected by late fall 2014.

Townsen Park-n-Ride Connector Trail

Preliminary design is complete on the Townsen Park-n-Ride Multi-Modal Connector Trail. This grant-funded project will extend south from the parking lot underneath Highway 59 at the San Jacinto River and connect to Phase IV of the Spring Creek Greenway trail. This trail offers connectivity to Kingwood through the paved bridge across the river, plus access to downtown Houston using Metro's Townsen Park-n-Ride facility.

New Tracts

Harris County continues to identify tracts west of Interstate 45 and work with landowners to extend the Spring Creek Greenway.

Phase III-A of the Spring Creek Greenway Trail

Phase III-A of the Spring Creek Greenway trail was completed in April 2014. This section adds another 2.6 miles of 10-foot wide asphalt trail and paralleling equestrian trail, which extends from Pundt Park to Dennis Johnston Park. Completion of this section brings the total contiguous Spring Creek Greenway trail length to almost 12.5 miles. Harris County now features four anchor parks: Carter, Dennis Johnston, Jesse H. Jones, and Pundt parks. Phase III-B will continue the trail north from Dennis Johnston Park following construction of the Grand Parkway in the area.

Dennis Johnston Park

The newest anchor park along the Spring Creek Greenway was opened in April 2013, used frequently as a starting point for cyclists. This 55-acre facility includes a crushed granite loop for walking/jogging, a fishing pond with an overlook deck, a butterfly/hummingbird garden, and the Big Stone Lodge. As of the fall of 2014, a new public restroom building is nearing completion as well.

Private reservations are now accepted at Big Stone Lodge. To learn more, please call 281-350-1029.
