Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve...A Peaceful Park in the City

 

Who could believe that this peaceful park could be located so close to the city? Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve is on 80 acres that includes a 40-acre lake (Marshall Lake), walking paths (some paved), 3 fishing docks, a boat launch, volleyball area, and much more.

The Preserve is in northwest Harris County and was donated by Kickerillo Companies and Mischer Investments. Surrounding the Preserve are multi-family homes, shopping, restaurants, and a major freeway!

 

The total paved trail is 1.7 miles and takes you along the lake. These are wide enough for walkers, joggers, bikers and dogs!! There are unpaved paths through the woods as well as an Eagle Scout Nature Trail and several benches for breaks or just to sit and admire nature.

Above right is just one of three docks...great for fishing or just taking in the view.

 

During the summer the Preserve offers a variety of activities including Fishing 101, Evening Tai-Chi, Come ‘N Go Canoeing and Fishing, and more. In addition, Scout troops and non-profit youth service groups can reserve an area for overnight camping. The area is located near restrooms that include showers and has grills and a covered picnic area.

It is not unusual to find a lone reader sitting on a bench while a kayaker attempts to catch a local bass. Or early in the morning before the temperatures hit the 90s there are groups working out in the open area with yoga mats and plenty of water.

Good morning Kathy. One good thing about living in downtown Chicago is the abundance of parks within walking distance. Enjoy your day

Recreation areas that provide peaceful space for folks are so valuable to a community.  I'm lucky to live near the American Parkway here in Greater Sacramento.

Michael Jacobs it's just 10 minutes from our home so there's no excuse for not walking. 

Wayne Martin you're lucky!!!!  Hope you're taking advantage of it. 

Barbara Todaro I can't lie to you...we've seen 4 venemous snakes since we've been there!!! I just think I heard you scream!!!

Hi Grant Schneider it is!!! There are two other parks we walk at but this is our favorite one. 

I agree Lottie Kendall We shouldn't have to drive hours for something like this.

George Souto we have a friend who is an artist and she introduced us to this Preserve. 

Brian England her photos would be spectacular. 

Have to admit Sharon Lee that's why we go so early.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I love it when cities offer these events for the residents. 

Myrl Jeffcoat that's a big plus!  Larry and I looked at the surrounding parks and other amenities when we moved here.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® when it's cooler and I want to have a picnic there. 

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 There are lake communities just north of Houston. If it weren't so far from my family we might have considered it.

The donation by Kickerillo Companies and Mischer Investments was a wise and wonderful decision! The Preserve has been a great gift and a nice benefit to the people to enjoy for many different purposes and group activities too. I like that people in the city have a short distance to go to experience tranquility without the stress of a long commute. It sounds wonderful!
