Riverstone Wetland Park – Sugar Land, Texas

A celebration of simpler times and the land’s natural heritage, Riverstone’s wetland park connects kids to nature in a way that inspires simple play — and getting a little dirty. Created from a parcel of flat land in partnership with a biologist, the wetland park is a rich ecosystem full of thriving aquatic plants, bald cypress domes, interactive features, and animals like egrets, fish and frogs. Engaging elements like a mud pie kitchen, targets in ponds to inspire skipping stones, pathways of partially submerged rocks, meandering trails, and interpretive signage — including pillars with pull-out drawers featuring an integrated magnifying glass for closer examination — promote learning through play. This atypical park destination speaks to the authenticity of the place while fulfilling requirements to replace wetlands lost to development.
