Texas will soon have a new state park – and it’s a little more than an hour west of Fort Worth.

Palo Pinto Mountains State Park is 4,400 acres. It’s a gorgeous slice of land in the rolling woodland near the town of Strawn, population 700.

It won’t open for at least a few more years, but locals are excited about the park’s potential.

A public hearing last week featured Texas Parks and Wildlife employees and attracted a big crowd. Locals had lots of questions.
