Great place to walk the dog though trails are natural mostly gravel, packed dirt, some cute areas of wooden lookout pier and wooden slate sidewalk through the meadow.

A little gem of a park in a suburban Texas town. Did a hike there with a relative that lives in the town. Well laid out and the original windmill makes it really special.

We enjoy taking our dog and walking the forested trail around the lake. Usually a quiet place to walk and sit. We’re seniors and enjoy watching Moms and small children. Friendly people. The park could use more and comfortable benches.

Our family went here late fall and it was great. There's a walking/running trail that circles the park so you can see your family and vehicle from the path. They also have a few basketball courts, spacious playground area and plenty of benches. There's a...More
