    Road Side Park
  • Signal Peak Road Side Park by Barclay Gibson
    Culberson County abandoned roadside park
  • Woodville - A roadside park beside U.S. Highway 287 northwest of Woodville is a wonderful place just for sitting on a park bench, listening to the sounds of the forest, and dipping your toes in a spring-fed pool built by Civilian Conservation Corps workers in the 1930s. Families come here for reunions, kids enjoy running around the expansive grounds, and Scout troops often camp beneath the tall trees. (From "Out-of-the-way places" by Bob Bowman)
  • Jonesboro - "... Jonesboro, wiped out by a flash flood in the 1840s, is not even a ghost town anymore. Only an old tombstone reminds one of what used to be there. The site is now a roadside park on FM 410, near Kiomatia, Red River County."
  • Love's Lookout - Perched atop a scenic forested ridge beside U.S. Highway 69 north of Jacksonville, Love's Lookout offers perhaps the grandest view in East Texas. ... There are two great times to visit the hilltop -- in the spring, when the dogwoods and other spring flowers are in bloom, and the autumn, when the hillside is ablaze with red, purple, yellow and golden foliage.
  • Old Mill Creek - near Brenham, Texas
  • Texas' First Roadside Park - Newton County, East Texas

    Texas Roadside Parks - Forum

  • A few years ago I stopped at a roadside park in Far West Texas, very close to the New Mexico border, located in the middle of NOWHERE. The interesting and humorous thing about the park was signs posted everywhere warning of rattlesnake nests. (What a great welcome, what a great location).

    The location of the roadside park with beware of rattlesnakes signs, I think, (memory... download...crash...human disk full.. error) is between Hobbs, NM and Seminole TX, on HWY 62.

    I failed to take a picture of this truly unique park. Seen it ? Been there ? Got the T-Shirt ? Would love to have a memento of my stop - D. Stephens, February 16, 2001
