Palo Alto Battlefield National Historic Site
#1 of 6 Nature & Parks in Brownsville
The park was well laid out and informative, and the staff was friendly and helpful.
This site was staffed by informative park rangers and offered an excellent video of the events leading up to the US-Mexico conflict that played out here.
Gladys Porter Zoo

There are many new exhibits since our last visit including the Butterflies, Bugs & Blooms exhibit, The South Texas Botanical Exhibit & Park, the Russell Aquatic Ecology Center, the South American Free-Flight Aviar...
There is also a park with in the zoo with a splash pad type area... bring a change of clothes.
Sabal Palm Sanctuary
#3 of 6 Nature & Parks in Brownsville
Plus, like most parks, they have some bird feeders so you can see local species like the Green Jay, quite easily.
The nature walk, birding and unique ecosystem need to be seen by every nature enthusiast.
Resaca de la Palma State Park
#4 of 6 Nature & Parks in Brownsville
Take the tram and learn about the history, flora and fauna of the park from one of the experienced, knowledgeable tour guides.
We are so glad we took the time to visit this park and highly recommend it and especially the tram tour.
Boca Chica State Park
#5 of 6 Nature & Parks in Brownsville
Beyond the park is a federal wildlife preserve which is restricted to federal employees and beyond that is Mexico.
We heard there was a launch pad being built for Rockets to space so we wanted to check it out, and Boca Chica Park was just a little bit farther.
Brownsville Historic Battlefield Trail
#6 of 6 Nature & Parks in Brownsville
Simply a Fantastic park that runs about 9 miles through town from north to south.
It is little retreat for those who like to reflect and be close to nature.
