Davey Dogwood Park

Davey Dogwood Park is home to more than 200 acres of picturesque roads meanders throughout the park. The park is featured during the annual Texas Dogwood Trails Festival from late March to early April.
This area includes over five and one-half miles of hard-surfaced roads.
The park is especially beautiful in the spring with the dazzling white blossoms of the Dogwood trees and many other native area wildflowers.
In the fall, the beauty of the area changes to the autumn colors of the native trees and the rich red of the Dogwood trees.
Picnic areas are provided at Manley Mountain (near the entrance of the park) and also near the center of the park.
Visitors may view the scenic beauty along walking trails located around the picnic areas.
