Armand Bayou Nature Center is an urban preserve located in Pasadena and southeast Houston between the Johnson Space Center and the Bayport Industrial District. The 2,500-acre nature center is the largest urban wilderness preserve in the United States. Founded in 1974, the center consists of a boardwalk through forest and marshes, live animal displays, bison and prairie platforms and butterfly gardens. The center also includes the "Martyn", "Karankawa", "Marsh", "Lady Bird" (named after Lady Bird Johnson) and "Prairie" nature trails that allow visitors to see forest, prairie, marsh and natural bayou habitats once common in the Houston and Galveston region.
From the entrance, follow the boardwalk to the posted coordinates. Here you will find the guestbook among the nature exhibits. There is a four dollar entrance fee to the center. Last admittance is at 4:00 PM. The gates close at 5:00 PM. The center is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
