Resaca de la Palma National Battlefield

1024 Paredes Line Road, Brownsville, Texas 78521 USA

“home to the 1846 battle”

An isolated natural area at the time of the 1846 battle, Resaca de la Palma now lies within the city limits of Brownsville, Texas. The battle site has also been overtaken by growth in this rapidly-growing border community. The old roadway that once crossed the resaca has been replaced by a major urban thoroughfare. Dense chaparral has given way to condominiums that line sections of the waterway. Nevertheless, large portions of the site have escaped development and retain a trace of the thorny brush encountered by soldiers. In sections removed from development the gulf breeze pushes away the sound of the city and allows observers to sense the environment that faced combatants on the day of battle. Recently, the National Park Service acquired the remaining portions of the Resaca de la Palma site and made it part of the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park unit. At this time, due to a lack of facilities onsite, programs and events offered on a limited basis. For the most up to date information about this site, call the park.

Best to come either in the mornings or late afternoon. There are some places with shade, but the actual trail doesn't. There's a beautiful picnic area with tables and a pavilion as well. Also, there is a place to watch the resaca with a bench. Great place to watch birds! Don't forget to read the historical markers about the Mexican-American war; very interesting.
