Big Rocks is a city park built around a rock formation along the banks of the Paluxy River in downtown Glen Rose, Texas. The rock formation covers an area perhaps the size of a football field.
No one I spoke to knew much about the geological origins of the formation. I did hear lots of tal about mystery rocks that "didn't fit," with the formations around it. I couldn't find anything online either, so perhaps a resident gigapanning geologist might shed some light...?
Still and all, erosion has done some magnificent things to the rocks. Also, Big Rocks is the only place I've been where they post a warning sign about amoebas. :-) Apparently the stagnant river water can carry the organisms.
