Longleaf Pines Park
is a picnic area on Highway 184 just 4.7 miles from Hemphill.
This is a small park and unique in the way it is maintained. Certain areas around picnic tables are maintained with the grass nicely cut. The rest of the park is allowed to grow up a ggod bit and become “weedy” (really, of course, they are wildflowers). Together with the beautiful, tall trees, this makes for a little nature refuge. Lots of wildflowers, many butterflies, and a great spot for bird watchers.
