A Decade of Dedication

In recognition of the support New Braunfels Parks receives throughout the year from volunteers, the Parks and Recreation Department hosted the 10th annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Thursday, September 14, 2018.

Volunteer efforts are visible throughout our community in projects such as park cleanup, tree planting and mulching, trail building and repair, planting and weeding landscape beds and assistance at special events. Over the past 11 years our department has reached historic heights in the quantity and quality of service to our parks, volunteers have provided. Park volunteers have contributed a total of 29,600 hours valued at $682,872.
