WALNUT CREEK (Parker County). Walnut Creek rises in northern Parker County just outside Agnes (at 32°58' N, 97°46' W) and runs east for sixteen miles, passing through undulating to gently rolling terrain surfaced by deep sandy and loamy soils that support grasses and hardwood trees. For most of the county's history the Walnut Creek area has been used as rangeland and cropland. Walnut Creek flowed into the West Fork of the Trinity River until the early 1930s, when the creek's course was diverted to empty into the newly constructed Eagle Mountain Lake three miles northeast of Azle in Tarrant County (at 32°55' N, 97°32' W).
