Faulkner Park Pond Fishing Pier and Hiking Trail

This multi-use park includes walking and mountain-biking trails that weave through loblolly pine and deciduous woodlands adjacent to ball fields and kids’ playground.

Part of the walking trail winds around a 7-acre pond.  Excellent bird-watching, biking, hiking, and fishing opportunities abound. The ETWWF provided funding, as part of a larger local park grant from the TPWD, to build a fishing pier along the pond’s southeast shoreline, as well as a board-walk trail along the pond’s north shore, providing visitors access to one of the park’s feature attractions.
