  • 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 »

  • Small park with interesting carved rock boulders next to a river. Great place to wade and to water slide on smooth natural rocks. Great place to cool off in summer as long as there is enough recent rain.
  • Enjoyed running around jumping rock to rock! A great place for family fun and pictures. Made great memories there and can't wait to go back.
  • Great park to let the kids or pets play in the water. Life jacks provided on loaner/honor system. The rocks are very large and would be fun for the older kids to burn off some energy. Could use a bathroom.
  • Went by the Big Rocks a few times during our stay in Glen Rose. It was a great place to spend a half hour between planned events. Our toddler loved climbing all over the rocks and really wanted to go into the water. There are some sections were there was broken glass, so we had to be careful with our little one. There's a long paved path along the river nearby that was also really neat. It started with a walk along the dam, which our toddler really liked too.
  • My husband worked at Comanche peak and while he was working me and my son was here. We loved it was able to walk through the water and the water was so refreshing!!!
