Davey Dogwood Park in Palestine in full color.

Each autumn in Palestine and Athens, the picturesque landscape transforms to vibrant colors as leaves begin to turn throughout the East Texas Woodlands. There are a plethora of activities for people of all ages. Enjoy nature walks, public art and art galleries, zipline adventures, local cuisine and so much more. Davey Dogwood Park is especially beautiful in autumn with the bright red leaves of the dogwood trees visible throughout the 5 mile drive in addition to hiking and biking trails. City lakes and accompanying community forests also offer up beautiful walks for the nature lover. Autumn color is expected mid to late November but it is recommended to call ahead.
