The Magical World of Piney Park

A brand new Christmas lighted wonderland is open.

There’s a brand new magical world in Marshall called Piney Park. Fans of Christmas lights need to make their way to this wonderland of lights that’s right off I-20 and US Highway 59 in East Texas.

Many lights are synchronized to music

Doug Stanley, organizer of Piney Park, hopes that you enjoy one of the best trail of lights in the country. There’s a lot of influence from other parks across the country. It took organizers and Extreme Lightscape about three weeks to put everything up. You’ll start by crossing a bridge over a quaint lake into a synchronized light forest. Explore the different sections from the Candy Land to the Under the Sea (inspired from the New York Zoo) to the Texas area. Finish the stroll through a long LED light tunnel that plays along with the music.

Stanley and his wife went to several drive-thru attractions over the course of their lives and wanted to create a walk-thru holiday attraction. So they built an incredible trail of lights. The trail is paved and easy to walk and navigate for wheelchairs and scooters.

But there’s so much more. When you finish the walk, the excitement and fun continues. Find your way through the Light Maze where the lights turn off and on as you walk. Take pictures at the many places from the tree to the lighted ornament. Find Santa and make sure you’re on the nice list. Stop by the Holiday Market to see and shop vendors and food trucks. Kids can work off a lot of energy playing in the hay bales and the Jumbo Jumpers. Everyone can climb Piney Peak for a fast slide back down to the ground. (It’s pretty fast from first hand experience!)

Reserve your tickets online and check out when they have specials for teachers and First Responders here. Piney Park runs through January 1, 2022 so time is limited to see this magical world.
