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. The park offers opportunities for wildlife observation and photography; common wildlife includes white-tailed deer, tame ducks and geese, raccoons, armadillos and squirrels. Fish in the lake include crappie, perch, catfish, bass and chain pickerel.
