You might be saying this is the DFW area, there are no beaches around here, but you’d be mistaken. There are some amazing beach parks in this area that are great for a dip on a hot summer day.
In an effort to keep our beautiful beaches that way, please remember when you enjoy the destinations below #LitterIsNotInvited!
Twin Points Park – This is the newest beach park out of the bunch, located at Eagle Mountain Lake in Fort Worth. Come and enjoy this big beautiful, family beach. Be prepared to pay $10 for your vehicle Monday-Thursday, and $20 Friday-Sunday.
Little Elm Park – This beach is one of the best of Lake Lewisville’s and is located near Denton. You can enjoy great sand on the beach, set back on a little cove. Patrons can enjoy the snack bar, and grills near the beach.
Joe Pool Lake – Check out this beach park out if you are near Dallas. This beach is great for families and has the convenience of having concession stands, a playground, and picnic areas.
How To Properly Dispose Of Charcoal
As the weather warms up so do our grills. But have you ever thought how do I properly dispose of my grilling charcoal? If so, read on to learn the proper way.
1. Cool Ash
Let charcoal/wood ash cool for 48 hours – you can speed up this process by pouring water carefully over hot charcoal.
2. Properly Dispose
Once the charcoal is completely cool, wrap in aluminum foil and place is the trash can.
BONUS – There are some great ways to recycle your used charcoal
1. Fertilize Your Plants
If you used additive-free charcoal, you can use the charcoal ash to fertilize your plants. The ash contains potash, an important nutrient for some plants.
2. Keep Odor Down
Keep a few pieces in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator to kill odors.
3. Keep Flowers Longer
Place a lump at the bottom of a flower vase to make cut flowers last longer.
