“Day sailing with Boy Scouts”

Reviewed 2 May 2018

The Sea Scouts put on a sailing event for the Boy Scouts. We had about 40 Scouts and 18 boats. This was the first time we have held the event (Sail Daze) here at Deussen Park and will come back next year. While shade is good, We’ll probably rent the pavilion next time.

A very good day sailing with a large group of Boy Scouts.
The Sea Scouts hosted its annual Sail Daze event at Deussen Park, and will probably return next year. With 3 boat ramps and enough water access, we had 20 boats in the water most of the time.
We had to clear the debris from the little beach area we used, but that did not take long.
For out group, we should have rented one of the pavilions, but there was enough shade for people who needed to get out of the sun.

Grass is high...hasn't rained so no excuses.
Docks are damaged...no excuses.
Definitely needs some TLC.
Great place for boating and family....if things were kept up.
Too bad.

We went to this park for the dog park. One of the best dog parks that I have been to. Two sections for large and small dogs; each has a pond for the dogs, a walking track for you and your pet and obstacle course for the dogs. There is plenty of running space and trees, shade and benches. There is also an area for washing the dogs if they get wet and muddy.
We drove through the rest of the park afterwards. There is a hiking trail that we plan on using next time. Plenty of picnic tables, pavilions to reserve, playground equipment for little ones and I think there are skateboard and biking areas. It is on Lake Houston, so there is a fishing piers and boat launch. Highly recommend this park for all kinds of outdoor activities and it is so close to Houston.
