Cypress Creek (Texas) is a stream that flows from Snake Creek and Mound Creek in Waller County, Texas to its mouth at Spring Creek in Harris County, Texas. It is part of the Cypress Creek watershed, and flows into the west fork of the San Jacinto River watershed- eventually flowing to the Gulf of Mexico.

The banks of this creek were a settling location for Germany immigrants in the 1840s. The settlement was later named the city of Cypress, Texas.
