Also there is a Bayou (Brakes Bayou) that we used to fish in when we were very young. Lots of perch, lots of Gar, and lots of large turtles. This is tricky to access but go to Pine Street turn on to Marina St and stop before you get to the bridge that crosses Brakes Bayou. Park and carefully make your way down to the waters edge. This at one time was great fishing. Be careful but enjoy the cypress trees and natural settings near the bridge. I have put in a canoe here and paddled up the bayou and otters about a mile or two up stream. Very nice for a place nestled inside the city limits. Good Fishing!
Riverfront Park is also available in downtown Beaumont and is located behind the City Hall and Civic Center locate at 660 Main. Again open to the public.
These two places come to mind. Others are available I believe, but nothing on Ponds are small lakes.
