Lucy Park – Wichita Falls, TX

Lucy Park
A get out and stretch the legs spot and with a growing family any area to burn off some of my kids’ energy is a good one.  Lucy Park is a regional park.  Located in the city of Wichita Falls, Texas.  Lucy Park was a fun little spot to take the kids. For a city park, it has a very natural setting lots of trees, winding paths, a couple of playgrounds, views of the river, and a large waterfowl pond.

Lucy Park sits on a bend of the Wichita River.  It has a 1.7-mile concrete trail that runs along the river circling the park.  The trail also connects to the running/biking trail system in Wichita Falls.  The park also has 3 playgrounds which our kids enjoyed. An eighteen-hole disc golf course.  Two water features a duck pond and manmade waterfall. A rental cabin for gatherings, lots of tables and benches as well as a swinging bridge that crosses the Wichita River.  Our little ones had never been on a swinging bridge before and their faces lit up as the bridge rocked up in down as we walked across.

From the park there is about a half mile paved trail to the falls along the cities trail system.  The city put in a 54-ft three-tiered waterfall.  Constructed in the late 80s the waterfall was constructed to replace the original falls the town was named after.  The city’s namesake was washed away in serious flood back in the 1800s.  It is an impressive manmade falls and good photo-op.

Besides a day out at the park or seeing a waterfall Lucy Park has another attraction worth seeing.  The River Bend Nature Center.  The nature center uses 15 acres of the city park.  Has a learning center, butterfly conservatory, and a nature trail.  A visit to the center would top off a fun day to Lucy Park.

    The water fall is really pretty. I love these trails that are free to the public.

      Free is always one of the better options especially with a growing family!
