About the Park

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. This park serves as a major trail head for the Walnut Creek Linear Park.
