Down in the valley you’ll find a birder’s paradise. About 360 species of birds have been reported at Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park, along with butterflies, javelinas, bobcats and more!
Nature is the main attraction here.
Look for birds and other wildlife, get some exercise, and see the Rio Grande Valley in its near natural state. Stop by our Exhibit Hall to enjoy the bilingual (English/Spanish) exhibits.
To protect the natural environment, we do not allow cars in the park. Leave your car at headquarters and explore on foot, bike or tram (check the Events page for tram tour schedule).
