1941 Texas Avenue
The calm shallow waters and slower rapids make Texas Beach one of the safest water access points within the Park for wading and swimming. The area is great for snorkeling and there is plenty to explore: fish, turtles, shells, snails and unusual river-bottom features.
The parking area is located at the end of Texas Avenue near Maymont. Take the trail from the parking lot, cross the bridge over the train tracks, and down the stairs. Head west along the shoreline path toward the Boulevard Bridge.
