The City’s Northwest side offers some of the best bird watching opportunities for bird lovers. Located on the Nueces River, Hazel Bazemore Park offers hawk watchers and bird enthusiasts a prime location to see birds migrate. Each spring and fall people gather to watch thousands of hawks fly overhead. The 77.6-acre park also includes a wetland, pond, and woodlands. Birding kiosks are located throughout the park. Labonte Park, at the city’s entrance, offers great views of the Nueces River as well as fishing and kayaking opportunities.
