Grand Opening

Grand OpeningMineral Wells Fossil Park celebrates its grand opening Saturday, May 8, 2010 at 11:00 am. 

Join us at the grand opening as we hear from the Dallas Paleontological Society and City of Mineral Wells Mayor Mike Allen. Mr. Allen will discuss how an old landfill borrow pit at the end of an unpaved road has been converted to a park that's already drawing interest from far and near. The program will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 8th at 11:00 am. The Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce ambassadors will cut the ribbon on the park about 11:20 a.m.  Then everyone will be free to hunt for fossils! Free gifts are available for the first 100 guests that day.
