James McKnight Park East

700 U.S. 287 North

The park was originally called “City Park” and then later “Central Park.” It was renamed after James McKnight who left a generous monetary donation to the city for the purpose of making improvements to the park. In 1987, improvements were made with the assistance of a grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife. Currently, the park has four lighted softball fields used by the Mansfield Girls Softball Association. McKnight East serves as a major trail head for the Walnut Creek Linear Park.
