Herman Baker Park

Herman Baker Park is a large community park located on 83 acres.  Within the park, Pickens Lake has a considerable amount of shoreline and a nature trail system around the lake.  The lake dam is a very popular location for sledding after every snowfall in Sherman.  The park has mature vegetation and wildlife, giving it a private, naturalistic and serene setting.  It's hard to believe that you are still inside the city when you visit Herman Baker Park.
