SILVER CREEK (Parker County). Silver Creek rises two miles south of Veal's Station in northeastern Parker County (at 32°53' N, 97°41' W) and runs southeast for 12½ miles over nearly level to rolling, grassy land surfaced with shallow to deep clay and loam soils. For most of the county's history the Silver Creek area has been used as rangeland and cropland. Silver Creek flowed into the West Fork of the Trinity River until 1916, when the stream was diverted to empty into Lake Worth just west of Fort Worth (at 32°48' N, 97°30' W).
