Be on the look out for new markers at the Bringle Lake Trails. Thanks to Berridge Bikes !

We finally got in the trail markers for the Bringle Lake Trails. Berridge Bikes is donating them for trail improvements. The cool thing is they are reflective! You may also ask what are the yellow and orange markers for? They are to let the runners, walkers and hikers know which way they need to be going. Hopefully this will be a nice improvement for the trail system out there.

A Big Thank You to the Texarkana Emergency Center for the candy donation for this year's Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat at Spring Lake Park on October 31st.

We, along with the Texarkana Texas Parks Department, are busy getting ready for the 2nd annual Trunk or Treat in Spring Lake Park on October 31st. It will be a drive thru event this year because of COVID but will be every bit as much fun as last year.

A huge thanks to Dr. Matt Young and Brooke Marshall of Texarkana Emergency Center for donating candy to help make the event a big success again this year.

By the way... If you or your organization is interested in participating, send us a message and we’ll get you the information. We still have room for a few more trunk or treat vehicles. We promise that you’ll have as much fun as the kids. 😀

It was a good evening for a walk at Spring Lake Park, and for Scout & Kiska the best part was spying squirrels.
