Mineral Wells Fossil Park

Mineral Wells Fossil Park is a great spot for people who love fossils, like paleontologists and students. You can easily find and collect really old fossils from the “Pennsylvanian Period” here. These fossils are around 300 million years old! And guess what? You’re allowed to take these fossils home, but only for your personal collection. The park we see today has been shaped by nature for over 20 years. It used to be a part of an old landfill from the City of Mineral Wells, As time passed, the land eroded, revealing a bunch of fossils that tell us about creatures from ancient seas.
