Nature At Its Best!

Creekside Trail

The Creekside Trail opened in October 2018 and is the first phase of the Kilgore Trails System. The 2.58 miles of winding path takes walker, runners and bikers through beautiful woods alongside Bighead Creek. Trail heads are located at Stone Rd, Houston St and Dudley Rd, with an access point also available at Moccasin Trl. 

Kilgore City Park

A very popular spot at Kilgore City Park is the Skate Park, which offers a partial bowl, half pipe, raised platforms and more. The park also offers a Splash Pad. The Lazy Splash Ranch is a free splash pad that is open during the hotter months of the year.

Lazy Ranch Splash Park

The Kilgore Splash Park was funded by the challenge grant of Mayor Ronnie Spradlin and matched by the generous donations of local residents and businesses. It officially opened as the Lazy Splash Ranch on April 28, 2018.
