Lick Creek Nature Park
13600 East Rock Prairie Road, College Station, Texas
515.5 acres, Acquired by the City in 1987
This park was established as part of land negotiations to create a city industrial park. The site has a variety of plant and animal species indigenous to this area. The park currently offers several miles of trails and provides an excellent opportunity for hiking, cycling, bird watching, equestrian activities and nature study. In February of 1998 the City of College Station adopted the Lick Creek Park Master Plan which established an improved trail system, new entrance drive, parking lot, visitor's center and outdoor classroom facilities.
Several trees have id signs by them that were put there as part of a Boy Scouts of America Eagle project in 2009.
The park is open to visitors throughout the year from dawn to dusk. No overnight camping is permitted and visitors are reminded to watch for snakes and to stay on the marked trails. Dogs may be leash-free but must be under “voice” control at all times. All plants and animals are protected and should not be harmed or threatened.
