Brownsville Texas is a great place to explore and enjoy. We are unique in part to location, a subtropical climate, a rich history and tremendous culture. When people say,"Location, Location Location," they are talking about Brownsville!
Brownsville is located on the U.S.–Mexico border, opposite Matamoros, Tamaulipas and minutes from beaches of Boca Chica and South Padre Island.
Did you know? Brownsville's location at the intersection of different climate regimes (subtropical, Chihuahuan desert, Gulf Coast plain, and Great Plains) causes it to be a birding location. Its unique network of resacas (distributaries of the Rio Grande and oxbow lakes) provide habitat for nesting/breeding birds of various types – most notably during the spring and fall migrations.
You can do anything in our city. You can hike, bike, fish, canoe, take in a show, or join a sports league, host an event, and more. Our parks and recreation department offers amenities and outdoor recreational opportunities to the public all year around.
Create your own adventure, or celebrate a special occasion.
There’s more to explore at our recreation centers than just our gyms, pools and fitness rooms! We also offer a wide variety of exciting events and programs for all ages. Registration is required for some events, you can sign up HERE.
