Cy-Champ Park
 
Cy-Champ Park is located along Cutten Road with the park’s entrance and parking from Hargrave Road. This long narrow park features a 1.5 mile linear nature trail, with a loop on each end, which is ideal for jogging and casual strolling. The trail includes distance markers and weaves through the woods for welcome shade. For additional family enjoyment, Cy-Champ Park offers a children’s playground at the park’s entrance. Water fountains are available, but no restrooms.
 
Cy-Champ Park is also the home of the ‘Fallen Warrior Memorial’, which is located near the end of the park’s nature path. This memorial honors the sacrifices of our brave men and women from Texas, who gave their lives so that we may enjoy our freedoms. The four large granite walls are engraved with their names in remembrance and as a reminder of their families and friends who have suffered their loss. More information on the memorial can be found at www.fallenwarriorstexas.org.
