Texas Parks & Wildlife
Splash in to summer! Whether you are in one of DFW’s local park pools or swimming in a state park, you can cool off while still enjoying the outdoors!
Your family can experience a closer view of wildlife and scenery on the water! There are eight Texas Paddling Trails within an hour of DFW that offer a new perspective to the world of nature.
Want to go fishing or take your kids fishing, but don’t know where to start? Go Fish! Learn-To-Fish Events at Texas State Parks are a great way to get the whole family outdoors, and to brush up on your fishing skills.
Want to take your family camping, but don’t know where to start? Texas Outdoor Family Workshops make it fun and easy for your family to learn how to camp!
April is a great time to get outdoors with your family, and birding is something the whole family can participate in while enjoying other outdoor activities.
Discover the wildlife of Texas! Bring your camera, binoculars, or simply your interest in the outdoors along to special events in state parks near you, or travel along a Great Texas Wildlife Trail for an experience in nature you and your family will never forget.
It’s easy to access trails in the DFW area! For example, there are over 300 city parks in Dallas and more than 200 city parks in Fort Worth, five Texas state parks within a 60 mile radius, and trails available through Dallas County.
Did you know there is a place in your city where the fish come to you? Texas Parks & Wildlife’s Neighborhood Fishin’ program brings fishing to urban areas.
It is that time of year again, when you are getting together with your family and friends. Why not try something different this year, and head to a park?
