Nature enthusiasts of all ages are invited to explore Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve by boat or land during the preserve's grand opening celebration Saturday, April 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Views of the lake, Cypress Creek, and wildlife such as egrets make this 80-acre preserve one of Precinct 4's most scenic greenspaces!

Activities include nature presentations plus canoeing and pontoon boat rides touring the preserve's 40-acre Marshall Lake. Visitors may also hike or bike the 1.7 miles of paved nature trails.

The preserve's construction began last year ahead of schedule thanks to a partnership with Prestonwood Forest Utility District. Eventually, the park will connect to the Prestonwood Forest community and the Cypress Creek Greenway.

In addition to its recreational benefits, the park serves as a natural detention facility that can help slow floodwaters and absorb run-off.  

The preserve was donated to Precinct 4 in January 2009 after Kickerillo Companies and Mischer Investments acquired the property from Hewlett-Packard to create The Vintage, a community in northwest Harris County. Ultimately, the property will connect with the 100 Acre Wood Preserve on the opposite side of Highway 249 and become part of the Cypress Creek Greenway trail system, which encompasses hundreds of acres along Cypress Creek. The park is located at 20215 Chasewood Park Drive, Houston, Texas 77070.
