Morningside Park Grand Opening Set for January 23rd

The City invites the public to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the grand opening of Morningside Park on Monday, January 23rd at 11 AM. The event will be held at Morningside Park, 3737 Morningside Drive, next to Morningside Elementary.

Following the ceremony, the community is invited to walk a lap around the new park with Mayor Barron Casteel kicking off New Braunfels participation in the It’s Time Texas Community Challenge.

“We are thrilled to open this great addition to the New Braunfels Parks system,” said Stacey Dicke, Parks & Recreation Director. “Morningside Park has something for everyone to help them enjoy the benefits of parks. From the bike track and playground for children - basketball court and gaga ball pit for teens - to the walking trails for adults and seniors, Morningside Park is sure to create treasured memories.” 

The 16-acre neighborhood park will offer residents a variety of amenities including a playground, a children’s bike track, walking trails, a gaga ball pit, basketball court, restrooms and a nature play area. The new, nature-based area creates opportunities for children to explore, discover, take challenges and risks, and learn in nature.

Morningside Park is a part of the City of New Braunfels 2013 Bond Program, for additional information on this and other Bond Program projects visit www.nbtexas.org/bond. For further details on the ceremony, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 830-221-4350.
