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.

Kids, Cars and the Heat Factor - Are You a Well Being?

As the weather warms up, it's important to remember the dangers of leaving children and pets unattended in a hot car, even for short periods of time. Texas Health reminds parents of the warning signs of overheating, as well as how to cool down if you notice signs of heatstroke.

Leaving your child unattended in a car is always dangerous, especially on hot, sunny summer days.
