Travel back in time with weavers, spinners, wood cravers, a blacksmith, antique tractors and much more at the 8th Annual Days of Old Celebration at Cedar Hill State Park on October 18. There will be wagon rides, carnival booths and food available for purchase. Come and spend the afternoon learning new crafts and relaxing at the Penn Farm from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Cedar Hill State Park is a 1,826 acre urban nature preserve located on the 7500 acre Joe Pool Reservoir. The Park's proximity to major metropolitan cities makes it an ideal destination for families who want to enjoy the great outdoors without spending precious time driving. Park activities include camping, mountain biking, hiking, birdwatching, picnicking, swimming and fishing.

Penn Farm Agricultural History Center pays tribute to the disappearing Texas' family farm and affords a glimpse into agrarian history as farm machinery took the place of the horse and mule almost a century ago. There are reconstructed and historic buildings from the mid 1800s through the mid 1900s. The Penn Farm has a very relaxing atmosphere and is perfect for family walks.

Cedar Hill is located 10 miles southwest of Dallas, 4 miles southeast of Grand Prairie, and 3 miles west of Cedar Hill and is accessible via FM 1382. From US Highway 67 exit FM 1382, 2 1/2 miles north on the left. From Interstate 20 exit FM 1382, 4 miles south on the right (on the Joe Pool Reservoir). The park is skirted by FM 1382 and Mansfield Road. Park Gate fee is $5 per person ages 13 and older.
