Texarkana Parks and Rec Details | More Opening Up June 15

Texarkana Texas has eleven parks that span well over 500 acres of land.  The City of Texarkana, Texas Parks and Recreation Department provides services to these “green belts” offering residents an abundance of outdoor activities.   The goal of the City of Texarkana is to allow residents the opportunity to get out and enjoy mother nature, exercise, and enjoy youth sporting events.  Did you know that both Spring Lake Park and Grady T. Wallace have free public wifi in designated areas?  Get out and enjoy nature as you explore the trails at Bringle lake wilderness trail, Phillip McDougal Trail at Spring Lake Park, Grady T. Wallace Trail, and Watts Trail.  Fishing is permitted at all park lakes/ponds with proper licensing.  Don’t forget to stop and play Disc Golf… a great way to enjoy time with friends and the park
