Springtime brings breath-taking bouquets throughout the park's rolling hills when dogwoods, redbuds, and wisteria vines burst into bloom. Although northeast Texas is known for pines, each fall the park is a delight as sweetgum, oak, and maple trees produce dazzling shades of red and gold, offering a stark contrast to those famous evergreens. Wildlife Observation and Photography: white-tailed deer, tame ducks and geese, raccoons, armadillos, and squirrels. Fish in the lake include crappie, perch, catfish, bass, and chain pickerel.
