Fair Park — Childress, Texas

Childress is a small Texas town found on Highway 287 about 2 hours east of Amarillo.  With a population of about 6100, Childress meets my personal definition of a small town.  You know, a town with one post office and no shopping mall.  A town where the people are friendly, main street is charming and they have only one high school.  One of my favorite things about Childress is Fair Park.  It’s a well maintained park with a nice playground, an overnight RV park and a pretty little lake.  For many, many years, I drove through Childress on my way to Dallas without seeing the park.  All it took was a left turn and a few blocks over — there was this great little park.

Lesson Learned — Step (or drive) out of the box every so often.
— You never know what you might find.
