Founded in 1892 by Simon West, the town was named for a privately owned area park for deer. The railroad station was started in 1892, and a post office was established in 1893. The population grew--largely from the establishment of industry along the Houston Ship Channel.
The Battleground at Deer Park golf course offers a challenging 18-hole championship course. Each hole is named for a portion of Texas history, drawing on Deer Park's title as "The Birthplace of Texas." A historic bridge links the clubhouse with the course.
