Welcome to Nassau Bay! The city was established to accommodate Johnson Space Center and provide a community for astronauts, space professionals, and their families. Today, more than 60 Nassau Bay residents have visited space, and a few have walked the moon.
Located across the street from Johnson Space Center and Space Center Houston, Nassau Bay has it all: space and science adventure, outdoor adventures, sun, and water.
The Clear Lake area is the third-largest recreation boating center in the United States.

Nassau Bay Wildlife Peninsula
This hidden gem is a 76-acre wetland area that is connected to Nassau Bay at the end of Harbour Drive. It features an extensive nature trail with informational signs and benches along the way. It is open to the public year-round. The peninsula is part of the Upper Coast Region Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. This region takes you along the coast where you will find a range of bird species including egrets, herons and Roseate Spoonbills, clearly visible from viewing platforms. You may even get a glimpse of an alligator (from a safe distance, of course!).
