A new state park is being developed in North Texas Palo Pinto County after nearly two decades. The new state park will be called Palo Pinto Mountains State Park which is located between Fort Worth and Abilene in Palo Pinto County. The new park encompasses a 5,000-acre area and will have a facility for hiking, biking, horse ride, camping, canoeing, and more.

According to James Adams, Superintendent of Palo Pinto Mountains State Park. They chose Palo Pinto because of its rich history and sheer beauty of the area that has tons of rolling hills, big oak stands and juniper trees, and a 90-acre lake,

The park is scheduled to open in 2023.
