Fischer Park


Fischer Park, the largest park in the New Braunfels park system, offers a variety of amenities for discovery and exploration. Stroll, run, or bicycle around the park on over two miles of greenway trails, where fresh air, sunshine and nature are abundant. Relax at the two fishing ponds, splash at the sprayground, enjoy the playgrounds, visit the Nature Education Center or take in the dramatic views of New Braunfels from the 62-acre hill top park.

Fischer Park is named after the Fischer family, whose homestead on the property dates back to 1946. In January 2007, the Fischer family sold 55 acres to the City of New Braunfels and gifted three acres to the New Braunfels Parks Foundation. Subsequently, the City purchased an additional four acres for a total of 62 acres to be developed into Fischer Park. This was the first major parkland acquisition since 1973. The Fischer Park Master Plan was completed in 2008 and the design contract was approved by City Council in 2011, with construction beginning in 2013.
