Spring Branch

One of the largest suburban neighborhoods in Houston, Texas, Spring Branch covers more than 40 square miles of tree-lined streets, plentiful green areas, and smaller bayous flowing to the Buffalo Bayou. The area was named after a branch-covered creek thought to contain natural springs. Once a farmland occupied by pioneering German immigrants in the 1840s, Spring Branch Street names now pay tribute to the early settlers who saw potential in this land. Located west of Downtown Houston and east of the Energy corridor, the area limits by the 610 Loop to the east, Interstate 10 to the south, Beltway 8 to the west, and Hempstead Road to the north.

Park-hopping is popular among Spring Branch parents.

Glenmore Forest Park is a popular dog friendly park located at 8000 Wingo, Spring Branch East. This fenced park has a cute toddler play structure, with swings and two-seater spring riders, and a waffle wall anywhere seen at any other park in Houston. The park also has a walking path around the equipment. Plan before visiting because the park has no restrooms and is in full sun!

Hedwig Park, located at 930 Corbindale Rd. is a great place to spend a full day or just a quick kill-twenty-minutes stop. The park is shaded, so for summers it is great since Houston has more summer than any other season. It has multiple play structures and swings appropriate for all age groups, fenced toddler/little kid area, and covered picnic tables with electricity. Much of the park is fenced, has water fountains, but does not have restrooms. However, it’s right next door to the Spring Branch Memorial Library, with bathrooms located right off the lobby. Don’t forget the bug spray after a rainy day; a shady park can be a mosquito haven! Parking can be simple if the park is not busy; otherwise, your next best option is the library.

Agnes Moffitt Park, right off Hammerly and Beltway 8, is a beautiful park with lots of greenery, especially nice during the cooler temperature months. It has a playground area, tables and benches spread throughout the park, a basketball pavilion, a ball field, a dog park, trails, and a public swimming pool. What stands out the most is the large Disc Golf course.


Moritz Peck Family Park, named for one of the early German settlers in Spring Branch, offers two playgrounds, picnic tables, and a walking trail.

The Addicks Reservoir, together with Barker Reservoir, was built in the 1940s as part of a federal project to reduce flooding risks along Buffalo Bayou, which runs west to east through downtown Houston. The maximum storage capacity of the reservoir is 201,000 acre-feet. The record high water level for the reservoir prior to Hurricane Harvey was 123,100 acre-feet. During Hurricane Harvey, the level peaked at 109.1 feet on August 30, 2017; this is the highest recorded level for Addicks Reservoir. Water retention at this level was 217,500 acre-feet. It is estimated the Addicks and Barker Reservoirs, along with other federal construction projects on Buffalo Bayou and its tributaries, prevent average annual flood damages of $16,372,000 to the city of Houston. In addition to the Reservoir’s flood damage reduction mission, recreation and nature observation opportunities proliferate through the approximately 26,000 acres of land that makes up Addicks and Barker reservoirs. Several parks are scattered, along with hike/bike/horse trails.
