Webb Banks Passive Park

Webb F. Banks Passive Park is located at 985 Key Corner Street in Brownsville. The walking trail park, originally a 14-acre cotton field, was created through several state and federal grants and through the City of Brownsville. The park was named for Webb F. Banks who served as mayor of Brownsville for 20 years. The serene setting includes many native trees and plantings, benches for watching the dozens of bird species which inhabit the park, including bats, 4,950 feet of walking trails, interpretive signage and a stream running through the park where ducks and fish live peacefully together. This park is a great spot for children and families to spend family time together. The gazebo is a favorite place for pictures and small weddings. It is a park enjoyed and appreciated 365 days a year by all.
