Spring Creek Greenway travelers now have more areas to explore, thanks to the opening of Precinct 4’s Rothwood Park in Spring.
The 71-acre park provides access to a 3.2-mile Spring Creek Greenway segment. The trail connects to City Place, a master-planned community on the west side of Interstate 45 in Spring. Visitors can follow the path to explore 150 acres of forested habitat and wetlands at City Place’s preserve. Those looking for a more urban experience can travel to the CityPlace plaza.
The segment marks a significant step in greenway development west of I-45. Plans include expanding the trail west to Tomball. This section will connect with the 17.5-mile Spring Creek Greenway Trail that extends from the east side of I-45 to Interstate 69 in Humble.
The Spring Creek Greenway connects and protects thousands of acres of forest along Spring Creek. It provides access to recreational activities like canoeing, kayaking, archery, hiking, and biking. When complete, the greenway will span 40 miles from Spring Creek Park in Tomball to Precinct 4’s Edgewater Park in Humble.
Rothwood Park is open daily from 8 a.m. to dusk at 23110 Fox Hunt Drive in Spring. It includes a parking lot, restroom, and a caretaker building. For more information, visit www.hcp4.net/parks/scg or call 281-353-8100.
