Just across the street from Oakdale Park is "Big Rocks Park" - also owned and operated by the city of Glen Rose.
Gotta have rules
Big Rocks is a popular park.
Big Rocks is adjacent to the river. The day I was there, families were wading in the water. The water below the dam was about ankle deep.
The dam - I walked across the dam to the path on the left and followed it to downtown Glen Rose, a distance of about 2 1/2 miles. There are steps leading down to the dam. There are no handrails on the dam but it is about eight feet wide so it's a comfortable crossing.
Tomorrow, I'll post about my visit to downtown Glen Rose, Texas.
