Baytown, TX

City Of Baytown

The City of Baytown was officially founded on January 24, 1948, when 3 communities (Goose Creek, Pelly, and East Baytown) forged together. The city sits at the mouth of the San Jacinto River and is conveniently located 26 miles east of Houston. Baytown is situated within 2 counties- Harris and Chambers, and is the 6 largest city within the Houston Metropolitan Area.


Being surrounded by water on 3 sides, the Baytown area is a great destination for saltwater fishing, kayaking, bird watching, and other outdoor activities.  The Baytown Nature Center  is a 500 acre peninsula bordered by Scott, Burnet, and Crystal Bay.  Their mission is to Restore, Protect, and Sustain a Natural Environment, and it is home to over 317 species of migrant birds.  Baytown offers 4 locations to launch a boat and take advantage of the supreme fishing our area has to offer, 14 areas for hiking/biking and 44 city parks (including dog parks, basket ball courts, volley ball courts, frisby golf, splash pads, soccer, tennis, skate, ice skate, football, baseball, and softball).
