Things to do in Euless
Learn about the people, events and industries that have shaped the region at the Euless Heritage Museum, which exhibits everyday objects and military artefacts. Wander through the 1930s-inspired kitchen and the 1940s-era schoolroom before stretching your legs on the trails of Heritage Park. This leafy green space is home to a mid-19th-century log cabin and a mural depicting notable moments in Euless’s past.

To the west lies McCormick Park, with its cycling path, playground and picnic gazebos while the Bear Creek Golf Club sprawls to the east.
