Lots of work has been put in on this place. Very nice settings of the Alamo area. Often has public events for all ages. Nice place to see something different.

The event was specifically for children with free hot dogs, hayrides through the haunted forest, face-painting, a costume contest, and many other events. The kids had a great time! This is the only event of its kind in the area and everyone seemed to enjoy it very much.
