Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area
Reviewed 28 May 2013

My husband and I wanted to explore a new area in Texas. It's a shame there is an entry fee, but I guess that is for maintenance. Lots of wildflowers and I understand the animals were moved because of the drought.

The Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area, or LLELA, is a great park with several well marked hiking trails through a couple of different terrain types. The Cottonwood Trail goes through several grasslands areas and back to an old Homestead; the Cicada Trail & Redbud Trails go through the forests, and the Bitten Marsh Trail goes over the wet marshlands and up to great bird blinds. All of the trails are fairly easy to do and can be completed in couple of hours.

Took my sons for a fishing class, was fun, we did learn a lot about the rules of fishing etc. The boys got a kick with the live worms but got a little board towards the end. Won't do it again, its more of a one time thing.

We went out this last December for this special event. Fun crafts for the kids and nice tour of the homestead cabin.

It's $5 a PERSON to get into what amounts to a oversized city park. There is little to do here. You have no access to the lake and are not allowed to hike to where you can even see it. There are basically 3 things to do here:
Kayaking in stagnant snake infested puddles about a foot deep.
Hiking on the hiking trails, and by hiking trails they mean 10ft wide gravel maintenance roads to the high voltage powerlines.
See the pioneer house. A generic wood cabin built about 10 years ago that has generic Wikipedia information about it.
I honestly don't know what the $5 park fee goes to besides occasionally running a brush hog through the "common areas." Only facilities in the park are a few port-a-potties and a picinic pavilion surrounded by weeds and powerlines.
