The outdoor ice rink will open this evening (weather permitting). https://www.christmasinthebranch.com/skating-under-the-stars

This is Texas so y'all know the warm weather in December is part of a normal winter season. That means the outdoor ice rink will be closed during the day on Saturday, 12/4 from Noon - 5pm. We hope to have it frozen over again by the evening just in time for the Annual Tree Lighting & Holiday Marketplace set from 5-9pm. Contact the StarCenter with questions.

Our Parks team has been hard at work at Temple Trails Park! 🌳

They are currently working on updating the water fountain at Temple Trails Park. Pictured is Juvenal Padron in the grey jacket and Jose Torres in the blue jean shirt building a concrete pad to help support the new water fountain. 💦

New week, new #macromonday! As always, trying to share my shots of nature with the world. This one is (of course) from the Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation Rose Garden - I love the color contrast on this one, what do you think? www.russrobinsonphotography.com to see more!
Just because you fall doesn’t mean you aren’t amazing, or successful, or any less. Here’s your reminder that the view from there can be just as inspiring. #macromonday www.russrobinsonphotography.com for prints, booking sessions, and more info! Shot at the Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation Rose Garden
Thought I’d do another bnw for this week’s #macromonday from Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation's Rose Garden - how do you think it came out? Check out www.russrobinsonphotography.com for more of my work or to order prints or book your own session!
Amy’s Studio on tour at the @fbtx Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation Farmers Branch Tree Lighting! We love this wonderful event. Miss Amy is proud to live, work, and play in Farmers Branch ❤️photo credit Hannah Barbee
"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious." -Albert Einstein It’s been a long hard week with some major ups and downs, but I’m back for #macromonday with another shot from Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation's Rose Garden! I loved how much the color stood out on this one, so I wanted to get a really contrasted background. I’m ready to get out there more and start shooting a lot again! Are you looking for portraits? Real estate? Something else entirely? Let’s work together! www.russrobinsonphotography.com for more info.
If you have not met Meagan at one of our events, you’re missing out. She is a rising star who goes above and beyond for our community. Thank you Meagan for all you do to ensure our events are safe, innovative and oh so fun! Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation is lucky to have you! #BestStaff #RisingStar #CityStaff #Parks
Flashback Friday - We had a blast at the Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation Halloween in the Park last month! We love supporting our city and local organizations.
“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” Ralph Waldo Emerson Ok, hopefully I can start posting more consistently again, but things have been crazy! But as it is, it’s Monday, and you know what that means! #macromonday time. I really love how the lighting came out in this one, and it gave it quite a unique look - what do you think of this shot from Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation's Rose Garden?
Sometimes, looking at things from a new perspective gives you all you need. A different view from the norm in terms of #flowermacro, from the back - my #macromania project didn’t get off the ground with participation like I had hoped, but hopefully looking at it from another angle might help. Either way - I missed a #macromonday, so here’s a #macrotuesday instead! Hope you all have a wonderful day out there! #dfwphotographer #fortworthphotographer #dallasphotographer #northtexasphotographer @Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation
Congratulations team! We LOVE our Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation staff! #community #CityInAPark
