Identifiers and Theming Make Bayou Gulch Special

A contemporary ranch theme is seen throughout the park in structures and decorative elements. Footprints of native wildlife are embedded in the central walk, and of domestic animals are around the interior farmstead. 

Structures include a homestead-like concession building, shelters which resemble farmstead outbuildings, and a maintenance facility that resembles a hay barn. The playground entrance is a corral fence and etchings of animals and native plants are hidden throughout the play area.
