D.L. answers from Dallas on April 27, 2007
We like going to Sandy Lake Park. It's $2/person to get in. Under 3 are free. They have picnic pavillions, tables, grassy areas galore. And the best part is that they have a lot of kiddie rides that little ones can get on. The ride tickets are 50 cents each and most rides cost $1.00. Our little family of three went a couple of weekends ago and we had a blast for under $30 total. We DID buy food there tho. So you could enjoy a couple of hours in the sunshine for a lot less. Also, there's a train ride that goes around the park.
If your little one still isn't quiet big enough, you can do paddle boats, play in the park areas or just have a quiet picnic. There's lots of areas to make photos of your family enjoying the outdoors. Lots of fun and close to home.
Sandy Lake park is on Sandy Lake road just off I35 in Carrollton/Lewisville area.

Ats & Jazz fest is this weekend in Denton. http://www.dentonjazzfest.com/
Brave Combo is the MOST fun band.
Admission is free. I don't think you can bring coolers in, but you should be able to pack your own lunch in a diaper bag. Bring a blanket and listen to some good music.
