Fishing at Bradfield Village Park

The park also offers a playground, barbecue pit and picnic area, and plenty of places to sit.
Jackson Tyler Norris Memorial Skate Park
Built in dedication to a local teen killed trying to cross U.S. 183, this awesome skateboard park offers a gnar way to spend a summer day. Jackson Tyler Norris Memorial Skate Park features include: a bowl, six grinding rails, two half pipes, two ramps, grind bench, manual pad, stair rail, stairs, wedge transition, restrooms, and a memorial garden.
Explore the Historic Stagecoach Park
Spanning 51 acres of mesquite and oak tree-lined parkland with a pond, pavilion, playground, and more, this historic nature park offers an abundance of wildlife for you to commune with. This picturesque local spot is the ideal place to enjoy an afternoon stroll or spread out a blanket for a relaxing picnic.
Catch a Flick at Doc’s Drive-In Theatre
After your last adventure of the day, climb into your car and catch a movie without having to get out!

There are even onsite cabins for rent, perfect for visitors who don’t want to stray too far from the big-screen action.
