This Fun Tire Park In Texas Will Remind You Of The Good Old Days
Texas has no shortage of playgrounds, however, there isn’t a single one quite like this. Jerry Matheson Park in Tomball features a plethora of different play structures all made from tires. Slides, swings, and even picnic tables are held together by the giant rubber wheels, completely changing the way kids (and kids at heart) have fun.
Spanning a whopping 10 acres, Jerry Matheson Park offers ample opportunity for kids of all ages to run amok. Plenty of shade surrounding the play area means even a full day of fun in the sun is possible without overheating.
Most of the play structures incorporate tires, a unique and significant difference from other parks. This giant swing almost resembles a hammock, allowing rambunctious little ones to sprawl out and soar back and forth like a pendulum.
Even the slides are held together by tires! Kiddos will have a blast crawling through the pitch-black tube before emerging on the other side and doing it all over again.
Quirky elements like this makeshift vehicle are sure to excite the little builder in every child. They can hop right in the driver’s seat and let imagination take the wheel, pretending to race down the highway at daredevil speeds.
A designated space for toddlers keeps any possibility of playground intimidation at bay. It has many features similar to the main area, with the added bonus of letting both age groups interact more closely with their peers.
Picnic tables are made from - you guessed it - tires! There’s plenty of room for parents to set up camp with a direct view of their child and tend to any food, water, or first-aid emergencies.
Address: 1240 Ulrich Road, Tomball, TX 77375. Hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
