Texas: Park earns Guinness record with 24,459 painted pebbles

The Guinness World Record for the greatest exhibition of painted pebbles was awarded to a Texas park’s rock art trail, which featured 24,459 painted stones.

Grapevine Parks & Recreation announced Wednesday that the Parr Park Rock Art Trail, which began as a personal project by local citizens Ron Olsen and Chris Penny, was inspected by a Guinness adjudicator and proclaimed the new world record holder.

The 24,459 painted rocks broke the previous record set by a group from Hinkley, England, who showed 8,542 painted stones in July 2019.

Penny told the media, “What started as a random act of kindness to spread joy and positivity during the pandemic has grown into something extraordinary.”

“It amazes me that people from all over the world have sent rocks to be placed on a trail that they might not ever visit.”
