Park Overview

Buffalo Run Park features entrance roads into the park, 3 covered pavilions, a unique observation tower, fishing piers, nature trails, restrooms, a public boat ramp, sand volleyball court, and many other amenities outlined below. All four lakes are connected and navigable by boats. (A NO WAKE rule is in effect for all water vessels.)


In April 2000, the City of Missouri City purchased 95 acres from Ft. Bend Independence School District for a storm water detention project in the Cangelosi Watershed. Buffalo Run Park is immediately adjacent to Thurgood Marshall High School on Buffalo Run Boulevard. Although the four lakes are used for storm water retention, the city recently completed a park development project to improve this property into an outstanding park with multiple outdoor opportunities for all ages.
