Town Lake Recreation Area

I don’t know why it took us so long to go check out Town Lake Recreation Area, it’s just down the road and we have driven by so many times saying we need to check it out. So finally, we made it. It is just across from the high school and easily accessible off of 75.

The lake is large with fountains, fishing pier, countless ducks, pavilions, restrooms, water fountains, grills, lighted trails, 18 hole frisbee golf course, volley ball courts, horse shoe pitching courts and playgrounds. I mean what more could you want! Its a great family park with something to do for everyone.

We walked over 3 miles enjoying all of the scenery and wildlife. I definitely recommend planning a trip to check it out. The pavilions can be reserved ahead of time for parties.

I will absolutely be adding this to my list of places to walk and recommend to others! Check it out.

Addison Circle

We have continued to explore the area around us and try new places. We love to walk and hike at new parks so we went to Addison Circle to see what it was all about. It is a beautiful park but really not for walking. It is small, maybe a city block, but would be a great place for events. They have a calendar posted and put on events all through the year including concerts, food tastings and more.

It is very clean with lots of seating available, perfect for the people who work near by to have a nice lunch break.

Just off the park itself are cute streets that have businesses and we had lunch at a small little bistro. It was a nice afternoon. Again not many shops and limited restaurants so if you head to this area I would recommend making sure an event is going on of your have a plan of where to eat prior to.

It’s a gorgeous area and I think in the future will offer many more restaurants and shops.
