Katy Area Featured Park: Exploration Park

March 14 2024

Venture outdoors and experience the joy of nature at Exploration Park, a unique public playground nestled beside the north side of Willow Fork Drainage District’s Diversion Channel. Opened in 2015, the park has become a community hub of enjoyment and education for all ages, with its unique blend of play areas, open spaces, and innovative eco-friendly designs.

Exploration Park goes beyond the standard playground. Its design reflects a strong commitment to environmental stewardship and education, with an underlying theme inspired by water. The park houses a multipurpose play area, complete with swings, a music bridge, a raindrop berm lawn, and a thrilling slide tower. There's even an interactive water cycle wall, providing a hands-on and fun way to learn about the water cycle.

Located at 15020 Cinco Park Road in Katy, the park also boasts an expansive open lawn for unstructured play - perfect for running, picnicking, or just lazing about on a warm day. In addition, there's a covered pavilion with picnic tables for those who prefer to sit, chat, and enjoy the outdoors.

Since its opening, the park has seen significant enhancements, with a 48-space parking lot added in 2016 and a restroom building with two family areas introduced in 2020. These additions further the park's commitment to providing convenience and comfort to visitors.

Visit Exploration Park during daylight hours and watch as your children discover the joy of play, the beauty of nature, and the importance of environmental stewardship.

Exploration Park offers more than just a breath of fresh air - it serves as a testament to the WFDD's dedication to offering recreational amenities that enhance and connect the communities within its boundaries. Ensure your next outing is a memorable one. Discover Exploration Park today!
