Waterway updates!

Most of Goose Creek upstream of Park Avenue has been cleared and modified in the past and is regularly maintained or is lined with concrete.
The lower third of the channel is subject to tidal influences and is characterized by meandering loops through brackish to intermediate marsh.
The creek drains into Goose Lake, a tidally influenced natural lake that becomes Tabbs Bay. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department
has also noted the shoreline near Tabbs Bay as an environmentally sensitive area that should be protected.
