The name of this park was approved September 13, 1976. At the time it was proposed to merge this park with nearby J.A. Carr Park, but this turned out to not be feasible. “Kiddie Carr” was chosen as a humerous play on words.
#5 – J.A. Carr Park (508 Simmons Dr., Euless, TX 76040)
J.A. Carr Park is home to a half-mile crushed limestone walking and jogging trail. Nestled among shade trees, you will find a playground, a sand volleyball court, and picnic areas. The Simmons Center is located at this park and provides a rentable space for parties or other gatherings. Adjacent to the Simmons Center is a garden area with a gazebo that can also be rented for your activities.
This park got it’s name from Joseph Allen Carr. His son, Cecil Carr, donated a portion of the land that now makes up the park. In 1976, the Park Board with the later approval of the City Council, decided to name parks in honor of those who donated the land for them. J.A. Carr Park was dedicated on July 11, 1976.
#6 – McCormick Park (2190 Joyce Ct., Euless, TX 76039)
McCormick Park is nestled between Bob Eden Park to the west and The Preserve at McCormick Park to the east. In 1984 this park was dedicated in honor of Willie Mae McCormick, a long serving City Council Member, who had deeded the land in December of 1982. Along the 1/3 mile bike and hiking trail you will find a picnic area, playground, and a gazebo which is available for rent. In total this park is about 12 acres in size.
