My wife and I thought this park was a gem. It introduced us to what Lewisville was like before the urban sprawl. The wildlife was abundant with mostly birdlife, but turtles, snakes and fish were also common. The trail systems were beautifully done and we...More

Despite having lived in the Metroplex since 2001, my family and I just recently discovered this hidden gem. We love coming here to go on nature hikes and photography trips. We often use the two photography blinds.
