AUSTIN, TX – The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has announced the opening of a new state park for the first time in years.
Thanks to generous Texans, Palo Pinto Mountains State Park will be the first new state park in Texas in decades.
Located 75 miles west of Fort Worth and sitting on almost 5,000 acres of rambling hills and a 90-acre lake, Palo Pinto Mountains will offer hiking, mountain biking, camping, horseback riding, fishing and stargazing.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (TPWF) is raising $9 million to help open the new park, and they’re halfway there. Help us make Palo Pinto Mountains State Park a first-class outdoor destination for all Texans to enjoy with your tax-deductible donation.
