  • Always great birding at Bentsen. Brought our bikes this time so we could see everything. Very easy to ride on the paved roads. Must see in the valley.

  • Lots of wild life in here with great hikes and bike rides. Also see lots of people fishing. If you enjoy bird watching this is a great place.
  • sorry to rate it so badly but i was not impressed. I have been to much nicer parks that were free i am not sure what the deal is here for the most part everything was closed there was an honor box where you paid to enter . what we saw was pretty.
  • This is a wonderful park to see birds and native wildlife. I tired to walk the trails, but June in Texas is very hot. They do have a tram that runs about every hour and takes you to the main highlighted bird/wildlife spots. Next visit I'm going to do that. Also they are a few areas for a picnic lunch with some nice shade.
  • excellent place to take pictures _ quiet and trails are growing - with much more interest _ great for all the family
  • Love cycling here in the mornings. Lots of wildlife!
