High water at Bear Creek Pioneer's Park July 15, 2012

Last week's drenching has markedly changed the vistas around Bear Creek Pioneer's Park, which is located inside the Addicks Reservoir; not to mention accessibility. War Memorial Drive was still passable Sunday during the day, but Patterson Road was under water and closed to traffic. The animals near the park administration building had been evacuated from their pens.

The birds seem to like it

At least the children's playground was spared
