The Spring Creek Forest Preserve in Garland TX boasts 200 acres of wooded land filled with giant, ancient trees, fossils, and an abundance of plant and wild life. It is like an oasis in the middle of the urban sprawl that surrounds this land. Some trees have trunks that are about four feet in diameter and over 100 feet tall. People who want an escape from the busy urban life can come here to enjoy the peacefulness of the walking trails. When the wildflowers are in bloom, the park is truly a vision of beauty. The park’s preservation society often hosts monthly meetings and community work days to continue the preservation of this beautiful park.
