Spring Creek runs along the northern edge of the park and I saw several people fishing from it's banks during my stay there.

The community DOES actively use the park -- there were 3 high school cross-country meets in the park during my stay, and the teams practice there each afternoon after school.

I was really grateful to the City of Tomball for making such a great park camping experience available for free. If you plan on checking it out look at the park's website http://www.hcp4.net/parks/springcreek/ and be sure to call to make reservations as 8 sites get booked up fairly quickly.
