Three Things To Do in Sugar Land This Summer
The air is warm, the sun is bright, and the daylight is extending its stay – summer in Sugar Land is in full swing. Many Texans were anticipating their summer vacations, but many have been cut due to the global pandemic. The Center for Disease Control’s guidelines on travel recommends against traveling long distances and air travel. With proper planning, a daytrip close to home might be the best bet for those wanting to get outside. Here are four ways visitors – and residents! – can participate in a Sugar Land summer.
Visit one of Sugar Land’s Parks
If there is one thing that everyone in Sugar Land is obsessed with, it is the numerous gorgeous parks. Home to 28 parks city-wide, each Sugar Land park boasts amenities and ways to spend your day outdoors. Each park is equipped with miles of hiking, biking, or walking trails, scenic overlooks, and picnicking areas for people to enjoy a meal in the great fresh sugary air of Sugar Land.
Visitors can visit staples like Memorial Park’s nine-hole disc golf course and six-acre dog park, Oyster Creek Park with its rock-lined river and scenic overlook, or Cullinan Park and its birding trails over White Lake. All parks are open sunrise to sunset, although some trails may close earlier. Remember: social distancing is still in effect in our area. If you are enjoying Sugar Land parks, make sure to stay six feet away of the person next to you and to respect the space of others.
