Texas State Parks are treasures vital to the character and culture of Texas. Eighty-nine state parks safeguard more than 635,000 acres of astoundingly diverse forests, mountains, marshes, prairies, waterways and coastlines in nearly every region of Texas. They offer numerous outdoor experiences and educational opportunities and foster an understanding of Texas’ rich history.
Last year Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation launched a $9 million fundraising effort to open Palo Pinto Mountains State Park, which will be the first new state park in North Texas in 25 years. Located 75 miles west of Fort Worth and sitting on almost 5,000 acres of rambling hills and stunning vistas, this new state park will come to life thanks to a partnership between public funding and a dedicated private fundraising campaign, which will have a transformative impact that will touch generations of Texans.
Donate today to help ensure that Palo Pinto Mountains State Park becomes a first-class outdoor experience destination for all Texans to enjoy.
