We had driven past Bluebonnet Park since it was built, but today was our first time to ever stop and check it out! Like many of the Ennis city parks, it’s beautiful! It’s also very conveniently located right off of Hwy 287. It’s the perfect place to stop to stretch your legs on a road trip, have a picnic or let the kids play while in Ennis.
Check out My Mommy Tips for making the most of your visit!
1. Know Before You Go
Bluebonnet Park has 8 baseball fields and 6 soccer fields.
Bring mosquito repellent
GREAT place for a potty break while on the road!
There are 2 playgrounds at Bluebonnet Park.
3. Open Spaces
There is plenty of space to run, play hide and seek and tag! The first thing I thought was was a beautiful place it would be for an Easter Egg hunt, with all the trees and wildflowers in Spring!
4. Ralph Evans Nature Trail
Enjoy a leisurely walk or hike along the Ralph Evans Nature Trail.
5. Fishing Lake
Bring your poles and spend a nice afternoon fishing along the shore of the 2 acre lake.
