Sheldon Lake State Park

Here are some photos from a recent visit to Sheldon Lake State Park.  It is a former fish hatchery.  There are some short trails, an 82-foot observation tower with an elevator, and ponds for family fishing.  It is also FREE admission for all ages!  It's on the East side of Houston off Beltway 8.  It's a small state park that gives you a nice break from the hustle and bustle of city living.  Take a picnic lunch and go exploring.

Two of the former fish hatchery ponds.

A 1/2 mile trail goes past the ponds.

They have restrooms and some educational areas.

There's a small botanical garden.

Various bones and shells were set out for the kids to inspect.

Found some large leg bones!
