The canoe launch offers parking for both cars and trailers with a short walk down to the Brazos River’s edge. The document section above features a map of available launch sites, safety information, paddling etiquette and laws. This map is helpful for anyone planning a trip on the river.

The canoe launch is part of a larger initiative, led by Fort Bend Green, to designate the Brazos River within Fort Bend County as a Texas Parks and Wildlife official paddling trail. Several launches are already in place along the river, both upstream and downstream of the new launch, in Simonton, Sienna Plantation and Brazos Bend State Park. The Brazos River Paddling Trail is intended for more experienced paddlers, with distances between existing launches as much as 20 miles, but other less challenging waterways in Sugar Land are also available for paddling such as the 25-acre lake in Sugar Land Memorial Park.
