Great place to go play in the River. There is a park near by and big rocks to climb on. There's a snow cone stand that serves snow cones and ice cream right next to Big Rocks. We love going to the River.

The rocks really are big! Lots of fun to climb. The river was awesome to cool off in- walking through or swimming or fishing if you come prepared.

These rocks have been around for millions of years. This is a fun place to climb around on the rocks and splash around in the Paluxy river. You can also do some tubing on this part of the river.

This appears to be a city park. Bring water, chairs, shade. Limited parking near by. Water is refreshing, moving. It is a river that goes over a small dam. Kids loved it. Not deep any where so safe for little guys. MUST have water shoes....More

This park is a favorite of visitors to Glen Rose as well as locals. The river is not much more than waist deep for the most part and ankle deep in many places. But the water is clean and quick flowing and fun to play...More

No. It's not very big , but it's worth seeing if you happen to be there. You can park and walk right in.
