City Guide

Deer Park
April 21, 1836 was a big day for the State of Texas. It was the day that the famous General Sam Houston led the Texan Army to victory at the Battle of San Jacinto, just down the road from Deer Park. The Texans won their independence from Mexico that day, and the cabin where the treaty was signed was located in Deer Park. Today, the city still proudly lays claim to its role in the creation of an independent Texas, and the saying still holds, "Don't Mess With Texas!"

Today, the city still proudly lays claim to its role in the creation of an independent Texas, and the saying still holds, "Don't Mess With Texas!"

Deer Park was named by the first settlers for the once plentiful deer that roamed the plains of the Gulf in this area. The deer are mostly gone now, but even though there are more than 30,000 human residents, Human Park just doesn't have as nice a ring to it. The city lies in the southeast portion of Texas, less than a half hour from the giant metropolis of Houston. If you'll be commuting to Houston, Deer Park is right on Texas Route 225, bringing you easily to the Interstate 610 loop around the city.

Living in Deer Park

Deer Park is an active community with a lot to offer its residents, perhaps because there are so many sunny and nice days here. The city is well equipped to provide everything you need to live the good life.

Location

Deer Park borders the Houston Ship Channel as it enters into Galveston Bay, and the city is home to several large corporations doing business on the channel, including the Shell Deer Park Refinery and the Dow Chemical Plant.

While Houston is an easy commute from Deer Park, the city itself is also home to several other large corporations including Praxair and Grainger Industrial Supply. With so many flourishing companies, you just may be able to find work and a great place to live.

Weather

The weather in Deer Park is characterized by hot and humid summers, thanks to the moisture coming off the Gulf of Mexico. The good news is that winters are generally mild -- maybe just a little cool some days. There's no doubt about it, though, Deer Park is really a year-round outdoor community.

Shopping

You can sure find the essentials in Deer Park, like grocery stores, pharmacies and gas stations. To do some heavy-duty shopping, you'll have to head to nearby Pasadena for the Pasadena Town Square Mall or to Humble for the Deerbrook Mall. Walmart and Target are both nearby.

Deer Park itself holds its Market Days in Dow Park on the third Saturday of each month. This gives residents and those in surrounding areas an opportunity to support local farmers, bakers and artists. There is always a large assortment of crafts, baked goods and seasonal items.

Golf

If golf is your thing, you'll enjoy The Battleground at Deer Park. This 18-hole municipal course boasts a demanding championship layout. The course has an historical twist in that each hole is named after an event that occurred or is related to the Battle of San Jacinto. Hole number one is named "Santa Anna" after the Mexican general who led the fight. Hole number nine is named "Nine Men" after the total number of Texas soldiers killed in the battle. Mexico lost over 600. You get the idea.

Town-Sponsored Recreation and Special Events

The city takes care of its citizens by providing and promoting opportunities for exercise and play. Because the weather is just so darn nice, Deer Park boasts year-round, city-sponsored adult softball leagues. You just don't get year-round ball in many other places! Adults can also enjoy basketball, racquetball and numerous exercise classes like yoga and Zumba.

The kids are taken care of, too, with basketball, football, little league and swimming. The city maintains five multi-use sports complexes and numerous playgrounds and sports fields. It is obvious that this town is focused on the health of its citizens, and if you are serious about your exercise, you'll appreciate Deer Park's help in making it easier for you.

City-sponsored special events for holidays, like the Egg-stravaganza at Easter, a Halloween haunted maze and carnival and the Fourth of July Fest are fun for everyone. The city pulls out all the stops for the holiday season with the Reindeer Dash race and walk, Christmas tree lighting, plays in the park and a lighted Christmas parade.

It's no secret that Deer Park is very proud of its connection to the birth of the State of Texas, and no surprise that it is home to the Totally Texas Festival each year. The festival has more events than you could swing a ten gallon hat at, including a parade, a fun run, a car show, a talent show and, of course, a good old-fashioned Texas chili cook off. Yeehaw!

Restaurants

Deer Park has its share of fast food for the quick bite, but there are plenty of other sit-down restaurants for a night out. Stoney River Legendary Steaks on Rand Road gets top reviews for its steaks. La Hacienda on Field Parkway will get you your Mexican fix and there is a California Pizza Kitchen, a nationwide favorite, on North Rand Road.

Deer Park may not be in the heart of Texas, but its heart is in Texas. When your search for places to live in takes you to the Houston area, Deer Park should be top on your list!

Living in Deer Park

Deer Park is an active community with a lot to offer its residents, perhaps because there are so many sunny and nice days here. The city is well equipped to provide everything you need to live the good life.

Location

Deer Park borders the Houston Ship Channel as it enters into Galveston Bay, and the city is home to several large corporations doing business on the channel, including the Shell Deer Park Refinery and the Dow Chemical Plant.

While Houston is an easy commute from Deer Park, the city itself is also home to several other large corporations including Praxair and Grainger Industrial Supply. With so many flourishing companies, you just may be able to find work and a great place to live.

Weather

The weather in Deer Park is characterized by hot and humid summers, thanks to the moisture coming off the Gulf of Mexico. The good news is that winters are generally mild -- maybe just a little cool some days. There's no doubt about it, though, Deer Park is really a year-round outdoor community.

Shopping

You can sure find the essentials in Deer Park, like grocery stores, pharmacies and gas stations. To do some heavy-duty shopping, you'll have to head to nearby Pasadena for the Pasadena Town Square Mall or to Humble for the Deerbrook Mall. Walmart and Target are both nearby.

Deer Park itself holds its Market Days in Dow Park on the third Saturday of each month. This gives residents and those in surrounding areas an opportunity to support local farmers, bakers and artists. There is always a large assortment of crafts, baked goods and seasonal items.

Golf

If golf is your thing, you'll enjoy The Battleground at Deer Park. This 18-hole municipal course boasts a demanding championship layout. The course has an historical twist in that each hole is named after an event that occurred or is related to the Battle of San Jacinto. Hole number one is named "Santa Anna" after the Mexican general who led the fight. Hole number nine is named "Nine Men" after the total number of Texas soldiers killed in the battle. Mexico lost over 600. You get the idea.

Town-Sponsored Recreation and Special Events

The city takes care of its citizens by providing and promoting opportunities for exercise and play. Because the weather is just so darn nice, Deer Park boasts year-round, city-sponsored adult softball leagues. You just don't get year-round ball in many other places! Adults can also enjoy basketball, racquetball and numerous exercise classes like yoga and Zumba.

The kids are taken care of, too, with basketball, football, little league and swimming. The city maintains five multi-use sports complexes and numerous playgrounds and sports fields. It is obvious that this town is focused on the health of its citizens, and if you are serious about your exercise, you'll appreciate Deer Park's help in making it easier for you.

City-sponsored special events for holidays, like the Egg-stravaganza at Easter, a Halloween haunted maze and carnival and the Fourth of July Fest are fun for everyone. The city pulls out all the stops for the holiday season with the Reindeer Dash race and walk, Christmas tree lighting, plays in the park and a lighted Christmas parade.

It's no secret that Deer Park is very proud of its connection to the birth of the State of Texas, and no surprise that it is home to the Totally Texas Festival each year. The festival has more events than you could swing a ten gallon hat at, including a parade, a fun run, a car show, a talent show and, of course, a good old-fashioned Texas chili cook off. Yeehaw!

Restaurants

Deer Park has its share of fast food for the quick bite, but there are plenty of other sit-down restaurants for a night out. Stoney River Legendary Steaks on Rand Road gets top reviews for its steaks. La Hacienda on Field Parkway will get you your Mexican fix and there is a California Pizza Kitchen, a nationwide favorite, on North Rand Road.

Deer Park may not be in the heart of Texas, but its heart is in Texas. When your search for places to live in takes you to the Houston area, Deer Park should be top on your list!
