Killeen, Texas

Located in Bell County, Killeen has grown in multitudes of people from all over the world, thanks to Fort Hood. With the addition of the University of Central Texas A&M, Central Texas College, and homes being built at a rapid rate, Killeen is becoming one of the fastest growing cities in America. As the population grows, new businesses are pouring in. Killeen is known as the neighbor of Fort Hood. The Killeen economy is heavily dependent on the Fort Hood post, soldiers and their families. We have a strong talent pool with U.S. Army veterans, an accessible community college, and a stand-alone, state-supported university. American values are strong here. At one time, Elvis himself was stationed at Fort Hood and lived in Killeen.

Park of the Week - Stewart Park, on the north side of Killeen
Welcome to Killeen’s newest playground! This park received a brand-new play structure earlier this year, along with several benches and shade canopies. 
Here you’ll find EIGHT slides 🛝
There are also regular and bucket swings nearby.  My kids had tons of fun climbing and sliding and exploring this new playground.

FYI - There are no restrooms or designated parking spots here 🅿️

This Memorial Day, we take time to remember those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. I'm especially grateful for my grandfather, Donald F. Smith, who served as a mechanic and ground support for the US Army Air Corps in WWII. *
This year, there's a special way we can honor these brave folks. Click the link in my bio to pay tribute to the active-duty service member or veteran in your life by placing their name and service branch on a brick that will line the entry way to the world class National Mounted Warrior museum being built in Killeen, TX. This is a special and lasting way to honor them and support this effort to memorialize these brave men and women. I bought this one in remembrance of my grandfather. *
To purchase a brick or learn more about the museum, call (833) 464-6667 or click the link below.

This weekend was SO amazing ‼️ I got to be inspired by some beautiful survivors who all have a story to tell. Life is such a beautiful gift from God. Sometimes we get caught up in our own day to day issues and it’s people out here fighting for their lives. 🙏🏾 I am so humbled by this experience and it was such an eye opener. #HumbleThyself #GodIsGood #StrutTalk 🤞🏾❤️
