Kids activities in Dallas

So, you’re a kid, eh? Or maybe you’re just a kid at heart. Either way, you’re headed in the right direction. Dallas/Fort Worth & Beyond is home to more fun per capita than any region in the country.

And it’s all waiting for you right here. This custom tour is all you need to get started. Just be sure to pack a camera. These are memories you’ll never want to forget.

Dinosaur Valley State Park

Dinosaur Valley State Park, located just northwest of Glen Rose in Somervell County, is a 1524.72-acre, scenic park set astride the Paluxy River. The land for the park was acquired from private owners under the State Parks Bonds Program during 1968 and opened to the public in 1972.

Eastward-dipping limestones, sandstones, and mudstones, deposited from approximately 113 million years ago along the shorelines of an ancient sea, form the geological setting for the park area. Over the last million years or so, these layered formations have been dissected and sculpted by the Paluxy River which, in many places, has cut down to resistant beds and planed off sizable exposures of rock in the river bottom.
