Staying Active in New Braunfels
Right now more than ever we need our parks to help keep us active and healthy. Social distancing doesn’t mean we need to give up our park trips completely or shut ourselves inside. Our parks remain an asset to our community. They can continue to improve our overall health, enhance our quality of life. After all it is what makes New Braunfels a more attractive place to live, work and play. The New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department boasts over 500 acres of park land for residents to use for walking, hiking and other forms of recreation.
The National Parks and Recreation Association has stated, “We believe that many parks, trails and open spaces can continue to be used in a safe manner that allows people to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits these spaces provide. In all instances, we recommend people follow local, state and national ordinances and guidelines regarding the use of these spaces and recognize that these vary from community to community.”
