WILLOW CREEK (Parker County). Willow Creek rises two miles south of Peaster in northwestern Parker County (at 32°50' N, 97°52' W) and flows southeast for just under thirteen miles, passing through nearly level to rolling, grassy land with shallow to deep clay and loam soils. For most of the county's history the Willow Creek area has been used as rangeland and cropland. The intermittent stream joins the South Fork of the Trinity River four miles southeast of Weatherford (at 32°44' N, 97°44' W).
