SPRING CREEK (Parker County). Spring Creek rises just south of Weatherford in southern Parker County (at 32°42' N, 97°46' W) and flows south for nine miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, three miles northwest of Center Mill (at 32°34' N, 97°48' W). It passes through nearly level to rolling, grassy land surfaced with shallow to deep clay and loam soils over limestone. For most of the county's history the Spring Creek area has been used as rangeland and cropland.
