Because of recent company failures in the recycling industry, recycling services are no longer being offered at Meyer Park, and the recycling containers have been removed. Please contact your utility district or homeowner’s association for curbside recycling within your neighborhood.
Precinct 4’s Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center in Humble (20634 Kenswick Drive) currently accepts paper, cardboard, and aluminum for recycling. However, this service may also be affected in the near future.

Note: Meyer Park playgrounds are located on the south side of the park.
*Swimming, boats, canoes, and kayaks are not permitted in lakes or ponds.
During a Harris County Flood Control District maintenance project in 2006 to stabilize, reshape, and regrade the banks of Cypress Creek near Meyer Park, artifacts were discovered during a cultural resources investigation.

The Gourley Nature Trail, named in honor of Genevieve and Robert Gourley who donated the easement, connects Collins Park with Meyer Park. The trail is approximately a half-mile long and 10 feet wide. Additionally, the Cypress Creek Flood Control Coalition (CCFCC) provided funding for the benches and signage located along the trail through a $10,000 grant they received from REI.
*Private use of the sports fields requires prior permission from the sports association. Information on cancellations or changes of all sports association practice/game schedules occurring on sports fields in Precinct 4 parks must be directed to the individual association: Sports associations do not provide Precinct 4 with game schedules, cancellations, or changes of their activities.
