A one-mile network of trails take you through native Texas environments, such as Blackland Prairie, Post Oak Savannah, and Cross Timbers Forest.
The Blackland Prairie used to dominate the Dallas region. Today, only 1% of the prairie remains in the state of Texas. Rediscovery of the lost prairie was the inspiration for this community park. The park is free and open to the public every day of the year, from sunrise to sunset. Comfortable shoes are recommended for walking the trails. Each season brings beautiful changes to the prairie landscape. Pets are welcome.
