Mark Twain in Trinity Park

If you're ever in Ft. Worth, TX visit the Trinity Park and watch the river for a bit with Mark Twain.
The life-size bronze statue of the great writer was "Given to the families of Fort Worth for the pleasure of reading together" by Red Oaks Books (Red Oak Foundation) and was placed on a bench overlooking the river in 2007. It was dedicated on June 28th of that year and remains a popular spot for children and adults alike to sit a while and read a page from Huckleberry Finn with Mr. Twain.

  1. That's interesting and a guarantee that Twain will be ever-present for those who use the part. Couldn't help noticing the dedication was done on my birthday. :)
