For those of you that aren't from around here, I want to introduce you to a case study in animal physics. With the introduction of a small strap cinched up toward the private region of a bull, you can actually create enough energy for that bull to leap straight up in the air, sometimes up to 3-4 feet. Add on a cowboy who is irritating this bull by sitting on its back, and the art of Bull Riding is shown. Now I am not a professional photographer, but I did get a couple good pictures of this activity, and I hope you enjoy it!

Samuel Burk Burnett Park
Update: During my recent visit the water features have all been replaces with flowers and sculptures. They are lovely!
I was very touched by the statement on the wall engraved. I think is says enough: "I S.B. Burnett do hereby give onto the city of Fort Worth, this land for the purpose of creating a place of recreation in the very heart of the city, as a public park and particulary for relief against the heat of our summer, and as resting spot for tired mothers and their children, said park shall be known as the Burnett Memorial Park, not for my own vain glory, but to perpetuate the memory of my two children, ANN & BURK now long gone from me."
~ S.B. Burnett - 1919 ~
Ok, this touched my heart very much. It has these wonderful water displays all over the park. It is said it lights up at night. I could see that business people and mothers with their precious little ones strolling around the park. I think Mr. Burnett would have been so happy to see that!
Location is at Cherry Ave and W. 7th St.
