Parkhill Prairie Park Photos

Parkhill Prairie is a 436-acre grassland park located in extreme northeast Collin County. The tax payers of Collin County provided the funding for this park in 1983 by passing the Open Space Bond Fund of Collin County. The park was contracted in 1986 and dedicated April 28th, 1990.

The park features a 52 acre relic of the Blackland tall-grass prairie and provides magnificent views of the countryside, much like those viewed by the early Texas settlers more than 100 years ago. Covered pavilions with cook pits and restroom facilities are available. The park is open during daylight hours.

Wildflowers on the prairie include Prairie parsley, Wild Petunia, Indian Paintbrush, Winecup, Prairie clover, Meadow pinks, Purple coneflower, Mexican Hat, Gay feather, Azure sage, Golden Rod and Asters.
