Loyd Park Expands Lodging Capacity
The 791-acre Loyd Park, located in the middle of the Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex on the west shore of Joe Pool Lake, has added an 18-room lodge to complement its 221 campsites and eight lakefront cabins. “We wanted to make the park more accessible to people celebrating family reunions, corporate and church retreats,” says Kelly Eddlemon, public information officer for the Grand Prairie Parks, Arts & Recreation Department.
The lodge features a fully furnished kitchen, a covered porch with rocking chairs, barbecue grill, a fire pit and big screen televisions. Loyd Park also features furnished one- and two-bedroom cabins with kitchens and bathrooms, as well as large private and group campsites, each of which comes with its own picnic table, pavilion, grill and fire ring.
Loyd Park is a popular escape for people that live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In addition to boating and swimming at Joe Pool Lake, it offers canoe and kayak rentals and a paddling trail along Walnut Creek. Hiking, biking and equestrian trails, volleyball courts, a softball field and a playground are also available. For more information, visit LoydPark.com.
