About a mile down the road from Woodlake (north on Water Works, left on Denmans Loop), Sparta Valley Park is beautiful, free and little used. The park is open 24 hours, every day for fishing, boating, picnicking and hiking. It has a boat ramp and a boat dock and easy access to the Lake Belton shoreline with lots of great fishing spots. During most hours of the day, no one is using the park. The park is well maintained. It’s a short bicycle ride from Woodlake.
