Picnic Under Fake Oil Derricks

No facilities or anything. Good place to stretch your legs.

Oil derrick picnic area.

Derrick Parking Area

What a fun way to represent the area. Made a quick stop on our way out of town to snap a few pics. Really wish we had planned a picnic! Loved that the picnic table on the far right only had one bench, making it wheelchair-friendly on the other side.

If you are traveling in from another state, the large Texas sculpture with shells and fossils makes a great photo prop!

Oil derrick rest stop.

Derrick Parking Area

Just East of Muenster, on the north side of Hwy 82, is a parking/picnic area where the tables are Oil

Derricks. It is hard to miss. There is also a large Texas-shaped stone marker that is very nice.
