Top Reasons to Live in Palestine, TX
- Great outdoor fun! Parks like the 200-acre Davey Dogwood Park might be a big deal in some cities, but in Palestine, it's considered small. The Palestine Community Forest/Upper and Lower Lakes offers 700 forested acres with scenic drives that lead visitors to lakes for boating, fishing and picnicking. Even that is no match for the Gus Engeling Wildlife Management Area (GEWMA), where over 10,000 acres are open to the public for hunting, bird watching, camping, hiking and a variety of other outdoor activities for most of the year.
