Nassau Bay Wildlife Peninsula
This hidden gem is a 76-acre wetland area that is connected to Nassau Bay at the end of Harbour Drive. It features an extensive nature trail with informational signs and benches along the way. It is open to the public year-round. The peninsula is part of the Upper Coast Region Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. This region takes you along the coast where you will find rookeries and be wowed by the number of egrets, herons and Roseate Spoonbills clearly visible from viewing platforms. You may even get a glimpse of an alligator (from a safe distance, of course!).
Parks, Boardwalk and green spaces
One of the great things about Nassau Bay is the beautiful parks and green spaces throughout the city. The parks have a variety of amenities and we even have a natural wetland area on the Peninsula with a newly installed Nature Trail. Click on the Parks tab to learn more about each park.
