Abandoned swing set in the community park of Catarina ghost town, Texas (catarina150)
Catarina ghost town, Texas. The Catarina Community Park, on the southeast end of town - a sad testament to a fading community. A handful of peeling spring rides, broken swings, ruined basketball hoops, a couple of poured concrete benches and lots of weeds.
Once one of the fastest growing boom towns in the United States during the 1920's, until the artesian wells dried up - now only a few dozen residents remain. Picture taken November 16, 2008. Photo #150 of 158 of my 'Catarina' photoset.
