Many locals are familiar with Emma Long Metropolitan Park, but just a bit further west and on the opposite side of the Colorado River is Commons Ford Ranch Metropolitan Park. This 215-acre serene sanctuary boasts lovely views of the water, short hiking trails and volleyball courts. Unfortunately, swimming isn’t allowed here but you can still enjoy water activities with the boat ramp and fishing pier. There’s been a great deal of effort to restore this prairie area with native floral and fauna, so keep your eyes peeled for interesting wildlife and wildflowers.
