This park has multiple things to do. It is a great walk around a lake! You can see families walking, fishing and enjoying the day. There is a new outdoor exercising area for Seniors, there is a playground (not so new though) and there is even mini golf. There is also a free gym and swimming pool for Harris County... More

Mary Jo Peckam is a nice Katy park. The lake or pond rather is stocked 4 times a year. It also has a nice jogging trail and plenty of space for families to picnic.

While visiting the grandchildren, we went to the swimming pool because it was raining all day. The swimming was free, but you have to make reservations 24 hours prior. My daughter had to show the grandchildren' birth certificates. After swimming we went to the Play Park. On our walk there, the ice cream truck came by. It was a lovely... More

Nice walk on smooth path which surrounds a small fishing lake. Never crowded, but a nice walk with your dog. The building has a weight room and possibly a pool.

Beautiful park. A great place to take the kids. Dogs on leashes are welcome (there is also an off-leash dog park right next to the park). The lake is easily walked around (even for little ones) and is stocked for fishing (with a license). There are lots of ducks, geese, turtles, crawfish, and turkey vultures. You might see a rabbit,...
