PARKS CREEK. Parks Creek rises in extreme southeastern Gray County (at 35°12' N, 100°41' W) and flows south nine miles to join Whitefish Creek in northeastern Donley County (at 35°05' N, 100°40' W). The stream crosses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and mostly deep, fine sandy loams covered with brush and grasses. Parks Creek was formerly on the RO Ranch properties.
