Elmer W. Oliver Nature Park
Elmer W. Oliver Nature Park offers the chance to get some exercise and learn a little something about the ecosystems in this part of Texas.The park is located at the intersection of two ecoregions: the eastern Cross Timbers and the northern Blackland Prairies. The 80 acres of the park contain several different ecosystems such forests, prairies, and riparian areas. Each section is unique in plant and animal life. For instance, you'll see squirrels playing in the trees of the forest, but they rarely explore the grassy areas of the prairie. Wildflowers shine in the brightness of the sun in the prairie, but they cannot tolerate the shade of the trees. Each animal and plant is adapted to a certain area of the park. Look for other examples of these kinds of adaptations along approximately 1 mile of trails. A visit to the Nature Park is a nice way to spend the day in Mansfield, Texas.
