If you have a kid who loves trains, or if you are looking for affordable family fun, try the Cedar Rock Railroad at Williamson Country Regional Park. The train was handmade by conductor Ken Knowles and his wife. The train circles the park, and even goes through a tunnel! Ken punches tickets before the ride, much to the children’s delight. We recently met families from our preschool for a train ride, and the kids talked about it for days afterward!
Southwest Williamson County Regional Park is located off of 1431 and Sam Bass. The railroad is operational from 10-6 on Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting. Children under 1 are free, for everyone else, the fee is $2.50. The park has great amenities, but in particular, it has a playscape, lots of room to roam, bathrooms, and lots of sidewalks that are great for riding trikes or scooters. You may be fortunate to see horses in the fields surrounding the houses just across the street from the park.
