It’s little wonder why Farmers Branch is nicknamed ‘The City in a Park.’ With more than 30 award-winning parks, a faithfully cared for community garden, and a variety of rose gardens with walking trails, this vibrant, growing town is teeming with life.

Nature lovers find themselves at home with beautiful parks, like the pristine 104-acre John F. Burke Nature Preserve that boasts a blend of two different ecosystems; one part wetlands and one part upland forest. Visitors are welcome from dawn ’til dusk to come explore the walking trails and relax in the wonder of barely touched wilderness –but if you’re one who enjoys a combination of history and nature, then maybe you’d be interested in checking out the Farmers Branch Historical Park.
