Comments: This is a nice, little park in Round Rock. The trail forms a loop around the creek, and is mostly concrete. The southeast side of the trail, near the parking lot, has many picnic tables, and a playground for the kids. There are a few plaques to read in this area too. I enjoyed eating a snack by the creek, and watching the ducks bob under the water to look for food. The east side of the park is bound by a low water crossing. If the water is too high, you will not be able to cross over it. The west side of the park takes you under IH 35, and toward the round rock, that Round Rock is named after. This part of the trail has a plaque that marks the Chisolm Trail, where many cattle drives went through. This is an enjoyable little park, with personality. I recommend it for a quick trip. It won't take you very long to go through and see all the sights in the park.
