About this Park

As you bike, run, or walk along the Brownsville Historic Battlefield Trail you are following in the footsteps of a rich history.

Over 160 years ago with the annexation of Texas, the United States became a party to the 10-year dispute with Mexico over which river defined the southern border of Texas. This dispute culminated in the Mexican-American war.
The trail is lined with local plants, birds, and info stations.

ATTENTION:   In response to the spread of COVID-19, playgrounds and facilities are temporarily closed.

If you decide to visit a park/trail, please be mindful of social distancing. Protect yourself and others. Make sure you're wearing a face mask (face covering). Maintain distance--Stay 6 feet away from other people. Avoid mass gathering. No crowds, no groups. 

COB PARD staff will be working to help maintain the standard upkeep, maintenance, stewardship of site facilities.  

Stay safe.
