Jerry Matheson Park is a 10-acre city-owned park across from Juergens Park located at 1240 Ulrich. The park was named after the late Tomball City Council member Jerry Matheson. There are 56 total parking spots and 5 of this total are handicap parking spots. Under the small pavilion, there are six picnic tables to sit under the shade and watch your kids play on the large wooden interactive playground. Inside the playground, there are two park benches. There are no barbeque pits though there are seven trashcans throughout the park.
The park features:
Large interactive Playground area – The playground is split into two separate areas: one is specifically for toddlers with a sandbox and a nice shaded area for adults to sit and relax while supervising their children, and the other is for older children as it has more complex and challenging features. There are several shaded areas around the playground and six picnic tables under a small pavilion. Reservation is required. Call for availability.
