With 754 acres, Cullinan Park is one of the largest nature parks in the Houston area and features an observation tower, nature trails, a .33 mile trail around White Lake, restroom facility, boardwalk and a scenic overlook, as well as educational signage throughout the park.

Cullinan Park White Lake boardwalk has been newly renovated with the decking wood, handrails and various support pieces replaced with new wood. The boardwalk and observation tower is now open per regular park hours.

Park History
The City of Sugar Land annexed Cullinan Park in January 2016 under an interlocal agreement with the city of Houston and a memorandum of understanding with the Cullinan Park Conservancy. The City of Sugar Land is responsible for park security, maintenance, operations and management of design and construction projects while the Conservancy is responsible for fundraising for capital improvements to the park.

Cullinan Park is listed in the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department’s state-wide birding trail as part of the Katy Prairie Loop. Birding is a popular pastime in Texas, and Cullinan Park has drawn nature tourism enthusiasts from all over the world. Cullinan Park is also home to the twenty-third largest pecan tree in Texas, which can be found on the Cullinan Park Trail Map.

No Bikes on Cullinan Park Trails - The land at Cullinan Park was a gift from the Nina Cullinan estate in honor of her parents. She wanted the park to be a "place of beauty and peacefulness". Please help us honor Ms. Cullinan's vision by respecting pedestrian use only on trails.
