web---observation-deckIn an effort to enhance the Nature Trail near the Sports Complex at Shadow Creek Ranch, the City’s Parks & Recreation Department installed an observation tower that elevates a low section of the trail previously inaccessible during heavy rainfall. Located at 1801 Kingsley Drive near the Sports Complex at Shadow Creek Ranch, the observation deck is 12 feet above the ground.

The spacious deck is the perfect location for residents to enjoy the stunning 360-degree view of a wetland environment and all of its inhabitants. If you enjoy birding, photography, or walking along the trail, the observation deck is now available to enhance your experience.

“We developed the observation deck in an effort to encourage more visitors to visit the trail to better understand, respect and appreciate our natural environments,” said Kendrick Gray, Recreation Specialist.

The City of Pearland offers some of the finest hiking trails in the Greater Houston metropolitan area. The Nature Trail at Shadow Creek Ranch is great for families or hikers looking for shorter hikes to escape their busy, everyday lives and enjoy sounds of our natural environment.
