Justin P. Brindley Trail
This single track mountain bike trail is unique to the Sugar Land area. The trail provides exciting challenges for beginner to intermediate riders, with several wooden technical trail features for the more experienced riders.

The trail honors Justin Petersen Brindley, a Sugar Land resident and outdoor enthusiast who died in a rafting accident. His family donated $55,000 to the City for the trail's construction, which is located in an area often used for outdoor recreation by their son during his youth.

Veterans Memorial
As you walk through the symbolic entryway and cross a bridge to a peninsula, visitors are able to walk within the obelisk and experience rays of sunlight reflecting through a vertical opening. The goal of the memorial is to exploit the site in a way that accommodates two distinct, but perhaps overlapping, tropes of honor - the Celebratory and the Contemplative.

The monument also lists the names of Sugar Land soldiers who have died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
