Excellent memorial to Veterans! Have been yo several functions there and they are always very moving. The PB Vietnam Veteran Assc does a great job. The Huey is a great reminder of the reason for the memorial!!

Love visiting both of Susie's Midland stores to sample the goodies and bring home an arrangement of chocolates and toffee.

As a lifelong Midlander. I cannot say enough about how little there is to do here and how little natural beauty exists. This area is a natural playa that basically functioned as an area to catch flood waters. I'm ranking it 5 stars for Midland. I'm sure outsiders who are from plush surroundings would think nothing of it, but I can promise you it's like the Garden of Eden compared to Midland. I've been coming out here since 2008, before it was open to the public. It's about a 1.45 mile loop with a hawk tower, boardwalk, butterfly garden, and several bird blinds. The main playa lake is heavily dependent on temps and rainfall. There were times it was almost completely dried up circa 2011. Over the past few years there has been enough rain to keep it fairly steady. The north side pond stays pretty constant and has a bird blind facing it. You're likely to see tons of rabbits out here along with the occasional roadrunner. I've been out here well over 100 times and I've never seen a snake or a bobcat. I'm bummed about the bobcat and happy about the snake. A major complain is the road noise and surrounding oilfield activity. This can be distracting, but doesn't take much away from why an outlier this is for our area. It closes on Mondays and is typically open 8 to 8 in the summer and 8 to 6 in the winter. It is free and a great way to get away for locals. Be prepared for photographers since this is one of the most heavily vegetated areas in Midland. It can get a little frustrating when they are taking up the entire boardwalk for a picture, but the photographers are always gracious and apologize and move out of your way.
