Those coming here also like to stop by the picnic area as it also has a grill. Getting some rest in the gazebo is another option for others, so which activity is your favorite?

Resistol Hat manufacturing plant

Texas is well known for its cowboys, and while this may be a generalization, most likely most of them have their famous hats done here. The tours of the plant are not free of charge, but they are on the cheap end and must be scheduled in advance.

Lakewood Brewery & Taproom

As long as you have the legal age for drinking you should definitely stop by this brewery to discover some really interesting beers. Make sure to come on weekends for free tours of the brewery. You should also ask about the seasonal and special brews available at the taproom on your way out.
