Tucked Away Treasure!

I would venture a guess that Maxwell Park Cypress, TX is not known to many people except those who live nearby or who set out to discover hidden treasures. The park is only 13.9 acres with a trail length of 0.37 miles.

The address is 12622 Maxwell Road, Cypress, Texas 77429. The majority of the residential houses on Maxwell Road have been built up to keep from being flooded by the adjacent and nearby Cypress Creek.  That creek also runs alongside this charming little park.

Parking spaces are in the central portion of the park with smooth and wide-paved paths plus picnic tables on either side of the parking lot. Water is available, but no restrooms are on site so keep that in mind if you decide to visit, walk, fish or picnic here.

Some people were walking their dogs, and one couple was enjoying a picnic. Perhaps it was their chairs set up overlooking Cypress Creek. The blue chairs made an excellent focal point for one of my photos.

There was no one fishing at the time of our visit, but there are some sandy banks that would allow access to Cypress Creek. I spotted some large dog prints in the sand.

The cutest thing was happening while we were walking through the park enjoying the ambiance of the sunny skies with cotton-like clouds amidst the Spanish moss-laden trees.

Two women with a child were attempting some photography. A small stand was set up with Kisses 5 Cents inscribed upon it. They were trying to take a photo of a small child using that stand as a prop. One of the women was making gestures trying her best to capture the attention of the child. The photo that I captured makes me smile to this very day. Hopefully, they got that perfect photo!

Maxwell Park Cypress TX is a quiet little park except for the occasional sounds of birds and rippling (sometimes rushing) water in Cypress Creek. Across the street from the park is another undeveloped space of wild grasses and trees. It is a verdant and peaceful setting for people who wish to commune with nature and perhaps whisper sweet nothings to one another.
