What an awesome find while we were in Wharton. Never imagined such a peaceful and relaxing park. Steps down to the water, benches or picnic tables just a top notch place very proud of the city. Citizens should be proud of their town. Chef Gene

Clean and well maintained. Nice view of rice and bridge. Short walk to dinosaur park. A bit hokey. Nice rest stop in the area.

This is a nice, well-maintained park running alongside the river, near the downtown courthouse square. Many concrete picnic tables, some with a river view, and others higher up near a nice playground, including a large, covered picnic shelter. Observation decks overlook the river. A nice...More
