The City of Pearland enjoys a thriving, local park system that provides residents with the ability to enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle. The City's park system is classified into three types depending on size and use: community parks, neighborhood parks and dog parks. Reference each park classification to find out more.
Pavilion and group amenities at the various parks can be rented in order to secure a specific time and date for a birthday party or special outdoor gathering; otherwise these areas are available for use on a first come, first served basis.
Planning for parks, trails, greenbelts and open space continues to be a priority as the City reaches build out. Find out about future projects and improvements that are coming up or underway.
