Silver Falls Park is the largest and one of the finest roadside parks in Texas. Since the 1800s travelers have found Silver Falls a scenic, pleasant place to stop. In 1935 the National Youth Association, part of President Roosevelt’s Work Project Administration, build the park’s stone facilities. In 2004, the federal Transportation Enhancement Program and the Texas Department of Transportation spent $2.7 million renovating Silver Falls, New restrooms, a visitor information center, and new, shaded picnic tables were added. Park visitors now enjoy hiking, backpacking, and picnicking by the beautiful waterfall. The park also provides wireless Internet services for its visitors.
