A beautiful 900-acre park in Dallas, William Blair Park, consists of two portions: the manicured front of the park with pavilion, fishing pond, parking lot, and picnic areas, which was expanded through the Trinity Project, and the back portion behind the Rochester Levee featuring rolling meadows, stands of trees and natural surface hiking trail areas.
A levee top trail takes visitor to the backside of the park and also it is a short walk over to the Texas Buckeye Trail. The 4.6 miles of natural surface trails originally built by the Student Conservation Association (2.7 miles) and Groundwork Dallas (1.4 miles) on the Bois d'arc Trail, can be located by bikers and Hikers by spotting flagged trees. Walking along the pond and groves of trees, it is easy to identify stands of Green Ash, towering Pecans, Burr Oak, American Elm, and massive Bois d'arc trees, the area's namesake tree.
