Resident River Passes Available through Parks and Recreation

City officials are encouraging residents to acquire their free Resident River Pass before the 2017 tubing season begins. New Braunfels citizens, who reside inside the corporate city limits, can receive the Resident River Pass at no charge to avoid paying

the $2 River Management Fee charged to non-residents. The fee will be implemented on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day on the Comal River and Guadalupe River inside the city limits.

Residents may obtain their pass at the Parks and Recreation Administrative Office, Landa Recreation Center or the Parks Operation Modular in Landa Park at any time during normal business hours, as listed below:

·       Landa Recreation Center - Monday through Friday - 9:00am - 6:00pm and Saturday - 9:00am - 12:00pm  

In addition, residents may obtain their Resident River Pass during any of the following extended hours at the Landa Recreation Center, located at 164 Landa Park Drive:


Monday, April 17th through Friday, April 21st    9am-7pm
