Our featured #ParkOfTheWeek is Blackland Prairie Park! Sometimes in natural spaces, less is more. Here, you won't find playgrounds or baseball fields or even a pavilion, and that’s perfect for those who visit it. This space was acquired by the city to preserve an undisturbed part of the Blackland Prairie, a tall-grass prairie land that once dominated the region. While urban expansion has driven out much of the wildlife that used to heavily populate these lands, some small animals and songbirds still thrive here today.
