PEARLAND, Texas – By now, chances are you might be feeling some sort of cabin fever having to stay home and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Although Texas cities and counties have issued stay-at-home orders, it’s okay to go outside and take a breather while practicing social distancing.

While parks remain open, the use of benches, playgrounds and workout equipment is prohibited. One hobby you can still do is fishing. If you need a little break, grab a fishing pole and check out these four ponds in Pearland.

As always, remember to stay at least six feet apart from other park visitors.
