I visited Cleburne State Park this past weekend, Saturday, April 24, 2010. The wildflower display was great! Really, just about the best I’ve seen in years. In the fields, along the trails, and especially the Spillway Trail.
Right now seems to be the time to go see wildflowers in North Texas. I guess you never know when the peek is for wildflowers until it’s passed, but my guess is it’s right now. If I was going to guess a little more, I’d guess the other area state parks, Mineral Wells, Meridian, and Ceder Hill State Parks are also looking wonderful, as are the roadsides along the way.
Here’s a link to a news release about Major Construction, Restoring and Improving Cleburne State Park. This article contains a link to a more extensive list of renovations under way and scheduled to begin in the near future. Oh, I forgot another local park, Lake Whitney State Park.
So, that’s about it. Click on these images for a slide show view of all three images.
