That tranquility was only slightly shaken by the signage which warns visitors to watch for snakes and alligators. Fortunately, the only wildlife we saw were some turtles sunning themselves on rocks and a Great Egret standing in the shallows of the detention pond. The maintenance company's rep told us that they had not seen any alligators thus far but expected them to find their way there eventually from the interconnected waterways in and around the Katy area. Other four-footed visitors are frequently seen, however: the park is already a popular dog-walking venue. A welcome amenity are the pet waste disposal stations, complete with mutt mitts for pet owners to use.
