  • This quick stop is good for kids to burn some energy. Athletic shoes are a must! Good place to have a small picnic.  more »
  • Pretty nice streambed with tumble of big boulders. Virtually no flow in this stretch of Paluxy River when I visited. Slippery rocks along a near stagnant stream. After a rain would expect it to be mor...  more »
  • We parked near the restrooms and walked across the spillway dam to walk down the paved and lighted walking path. We turned around before going to the end.  more »

  • Nice area with great views and photo ops. Parking is somewhat limited but I've always found a spot to park so far. Can get a little crowded but the area is a decent size, so finding your own little corner to enjoy shouldn't be too hard. Nice little ice cream shop just to the left of the entrance if you'd like a treat while there
  • Cool place! Dropped off some tools in Glen Rose today and did not expect to come across a neat area like this. Very cool place, lovely town. It has a nice small town country vibe like most of Texas does. Awesome.
  • Very nice small park, the parking lot is a little small but we got there around seven thirty and it was not very busy . People get in the water to swim and they have life savers for who ever needed. The main thing is that they have a very nice rock formations that look like hills and people get on top of them, very nice place to visit.
  • Great place for Big and Small. Free admission, good ice cream shop next door. Fabulous place.
  • Fun, put my toes in the water. Climber some big rocks. Even got to see some cute dogs playing. I love this town so much. Everything in this town is awesome!
