What's in a Southlake Park Name?

Southlake's Bicentennial Park

Southlake’s Bicentennial Park

Bicentennial, Bob Jones, Rustin, Royal and Annie Smith, McPherson, Noble, Liberty at Sheltonwood – do you know how these wonderful Southlake parks got their names? Each name represents people or events that are meaningful to our community.

Learn the stories of these parks at a fun and entertaining historical society program 2-4 p.m., Sunday, May 4, at Liberty Park at Sheltonwood, 500 E. Dove Road.

Pamela Muller, Southlake deputy mayor pro tem and a lifetime member of the Southlake Historical Society, will be there to tell why she suggested the name Bob Jones for the popular park north of Texas 114.
Other historical society members will tell the stories of the other six parks. A slide show will give a tour of all seven parks.

Bring the family and enjoy free hot dogs, chips and a drink. Everyone is welcome.  Please RSVP to Tamara McMillan at 817-807-6827 or tamaramcmillan@yahoo.com so we can be sure to have plenty of hot dogs and drinks for all.
