  • History at the tip of Texas. It's must be over 5 yrs since we last visited this park and to be honest this place has change quite a bit. We went for a walk with our dog and it was a very quiet and pleasant one. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the day was cloudy with a nice cool breeze. Summer can be a scorcher so if you visit in summer I would advise anybody to visit in late afternoon and don't forget to take plenty of water and sun block. This park is full of history so don't forget to take your camera or phone to take pictures. The park is free of charge and if you visit I'm sure you are going to like this nice and pleasant atmosphere. I give this place a two thumbs up for it was worth the visit.
  • The 15 minute video was very interesting and they can start it at any time. It's a small museum but they have a few artifacts to see and the info is short and concise. The ranger lady there 4/17 was knowledgeable and helpful, I enjoyed talking with her! There's lots of walking around the battlefield that you can do. My husband and I are big history buffs so we enjoyed the visit and we love the National Park Service as they're usually helpful and enjoy educating folks.
