Hidden Away in Euless... just across from Wilshire Elementary School... is the entrance to Wilshire Park. It's pretty well hidden, so you've really got to look for the "sign"... which is the large rock pictured below.
Kynette Street is on the North Side of Wilshire Elementary, and that's where you'll find the Wilshire Rock, and the entrance to Wilshire Park and Wilshire Pond ! There's plenty of parking, but Wilshire Park is easily within walking distance from all of the Wilshire area, and also from nearby Oakridge Estates.
Just a short distance into the park, you'll find a nice array of picnic tables, bar-be-que grills, playground equipment, and the walkway leading down to Wilshire Pond. It's a great place to bring the kids... the little ones, your toddlers, and even your grade-schoolers and your teens. Family fun... and it's Free !
There's a nice walkway/jogging path all the way around Wilshire Pond. And... one great thing about Wilshire Park... nobody seems to know about it... because it is never crowded. So... if you're like I am... and want to walk or job, but don't want a crowd of people around... this is a great place to do it.
In addition to picnics and barbeques, jogging and playground equipment, Wilshire Park also features it's own fishing pier. Bring your rod, sit right down, dangle your legs, give your rod a "whirl"... and fish your cares away. Sometimes you might even but some bait on the hook... but many folks who like to fish tell me that fishing isn't always about catching the fish... it's more about "the fishing." Either way, baited or not, fishing off the pier is very, very relaxing.
Another really fun thing you can do at Wilshire Park is take a blanket across the Wilshire Pond to the other side of the southern fountain (there are two of them)... , spread out the blanket, and just relax, read a book, listen to your I-Pod, or just chill. Many times I have taken a book with me, spread out my blankie, and just read a chapter or two. Once again... very, very relaxing.
So... give yourself a real treat. Come on down to Wilshire Park. Bring the kids, bring your sweetie, or just bring yourself ! The weather these days is still very much early-Fall-like... so there's still lots of time to let go of your stress. Come on Down... to Wilshire Park !
