WELCOME TO NASSAU BAY

Welcome to Nassau Bay! The city was established to accommodate Johnson Space Center and provide a community for astronauts, space professionals, and their families. Today, more than 60 Nassau Bay residents have visited space, and a few have walked the moon. In 2005, the city dedicated a serpentine wall of black granite featuring the flags of the nations participating in the International Space Station. The striking monument is on NASA Parkway in the median between NASA and the city.
Located across the street from Johnson Space Center and Space Center Houston, Nassau Bay has it all: space and science adventure, fun, sun and water.

This hidden gem is a 76-acre wetland area that is connected to Nassau Bay at the end of Harbour Drive. It features an extensive nature trail with informational signs and benches along the way. It is open to the public year round. 

The peninsula is part of the Upper Coast Region Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. This region takes you along the coast where you will find rookeries and be wowed by the number of egrets, herons and Roseate Spoonbills clearly visible from viewing platforms. You may even get a glimpse of an alligator (from a safe distance, of course!).
