The park consists of 6 acres of ponds for fishing purposes. It also consists of thirteen soccer fields and parking. In the far north side of this park, corral pens, hitching posts, trailer parking, and a ranch faucet are present. Here there are a lot of facilities like the Grills, BBQ and the fire ring, pavilion, picnic tables, playgrounds, and restrooms.
The people who are visiting the place can find more things to do such as fishing, Hiking/Walking, Horseback riding, Picnicking, and wildlife watching. The people can visit the park from the morning 9 o’clock to the night 11 o’clock. It is the best place for doing any exercise and also spending the leisure time with the full calmness and pleasant environment.
Over the years, there have been great changes in the park, including the girl’s softball complex, with the proper playground. In the year 2006, Boo Boo’s dog park is present in the east direction from this softball complex. This place is about 2.5 acres. Preserve and nature center was opened in 2008. These two places have become famous for enjoying Southlake’s natural habitat beauty. The park is named after Bob Jones.
For over 50 years, this Jones family lived in Southlake doing the livestock auction business. The livestock auction is present in Texas 114 and White’s Chapel Road. His sons have launched a tiny café in the year of 1949. Going for the family trip will be good for the people as they will explore the four trails like biking, running, and the others. It is the best place for children, adults, teens, and family members to explore a lot of the playing areas and the relaxing places.
The place is more calm and comfortable for spending leisure time with family or friends. Many new facilities like the increment of the restroom facility, canteens, and the others are getting upgraded at this place, and hope there will be so many changes in the upcoming years.
