Callen's Castle All Abilities Park
About the Project
Callen’s Castle is a partnership project with New Braunfels Parks Foundation, Callen Hughs Foundation and the City of New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department. Callen’s Castle will be an all abilities park, much like Morgan’s Wonderland or Play for All Abilities Park in Round Rock. The park will feature special equipment that will allow children and adults, regardless of their abilities, to play together.
In December 2014, City Council approved a four acre site on FM 1044 for the future park.
In July 2015, two public input meetings were held, in addition to an online survey asking for community input on the future park.
Based on community feedback a Master Plan was developed, presented and ultimately approved by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board in November 2015. Click here to view the approved Callen’s Castle Master Plan.
The future park will include amenities swings and a merry-go-round specifically for wheelchairs, foam mats, a sensory area that incorporates textures and music, a playscape with ramps and all abilities play-field and parking.
