Cullinan Park, Hwy 6 S, 77478
Joseph S. and Lucie H. Cullinan Park at Oyster Creek (Cullinan Park, Oyster Creek), located in far southwest Houston, has been an invaluable natural, green asset to the City of Houston and its surrounding communities since it was dedicated as a Park in 1989. The Houston Parks Board purchased the park with funds from the Nina J. Cullinan Estate and The Brown Foundation in partnership with the City of Houston. Over the next several years, the Parks Board assisted in the development of the park with low intensity improvements. The visionary leadership of the time knew that 750 acres of open space on Highway 6 would become very important to the quality of life in Houston as growth continued its rapid pace.
Twenty years later, the park is an oasis in a continually expanding urban environment. However, due to the limited resources available in the City’s budget, the Park is in need of thoughtful private stewardship to supplement the available resources in restoring and conserving the natural features of the Park. This private stewardship, in the form of The Cullinan Park Conservancy, is dedicated to a mission of restoration and conservation.
The Cullinan Park Conservancy is currently developing plans for the preservation, restoration and appreciation of the nature of Cullinan Park. The park has woods, meadows, ponds, trails, and a great deal of potential. The Conservancy hopes that you will join them in this effort as a friend of Cullinan Park.
