HARRIS COUNTY, TX – Tuesday April 16, 2019-- Commissioner Adrian Garcia has reopened six of the eight Precinct 2 parks with waterfronts in the Intercontinental Terminals Company (ITC) incident area.

The following Parks are now open to the public: 

  • Sylvan Beach
  • Meadowbrook
  • Rio Villa Nature Trail

  • Bay Area Park

The following three parks remain closed until further notice:
