Special thanks to the crew at George Bush Park - Harris County Precinct Three for providing Scobee Field to the Bayou City Flyers... Also, without the dedication of the U.S. Army Corp or Engineers, we would not have Bush Park... Without their hard work and dedication, Scobee Field would not be the biggest and best RC flying facility in Houston...
George Bush Park is comprised of 7800 acres of park land, open for all to enjoy... The park has riding trails, bicycle paths, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, ponds & bayous, dog parks, play grounds and cookout areas... The park is open 365 days a year...
