Rockledge Park is a spectacular park offering up the best views of Lake Grapevine that you can find. The park sits atop the rocky ridges and bluffs that sit on the east side of Lake Grapevine near the dam. There are numerous picnic areas for day use including many that sit literally on the edge of the bluffs offering wonderful views of the lake.
Entrance to the park is $5 per vehicle ($10 per vehicle on holiday weekends)
8 am to sunset daily. (The park does stay open on Fridays through the fireworks show during the summer.)
This is our favorite park for a picnic and a day out on Lake Grapevine. There is a non-designated swimming area down below the cliffs. (Please remember to be safe and wear a life vest.)

Beginning in the late 19th century, farmers began selling their fresh produce in various locations from their wagons. Around 1900, the intersection of Pearl and Cadiz streets became the hub of a brisk wholesale business. Large quantities of produce were sold along with chickens, pigs, goats, and eggs. As demand for farm-fresh produce and meat grew it was clear that a better-organized system was needed. In 1939, the site of the Dallas Farmers Market was formalized and the first shed established. The site was officially sanctioned as a municipally-owned and operated market in December 1941.
Today, the Dallas Farmers Market features three kinds of sellers: produce dealers, wholesale dealers and local farmers. Monthly yard sales, cooking classes, workshops, and seasonal festivals also take place throughout the year. Floral and garden vendors are located adjacent to the market.
