If the air is 28 degrees, how cold is the water in Blue Hole?
A-Mazing Success! Undaunted -- or perhaps inspired ---by our 28 degree afternoon high, about 30 individuals took the Polar Bear Plunge this afternoon including the awesome park staff.

We are thankful for a quiet "ribbon-cutting" last week that signaled the beginning of Phase III of the park's Master Plan: the restoration of the uplands to an example of the Texas Hill Country at its best. Special training by the LBJ Wildflower Center will guide staff and volunteers in this final phase that will last the life of the park. We thank the Jacob and Terese Hershey for the grant that made this possible. We'll take the patient and careful path to successful land stewardship and restoration. Be sure to see this week's Wimberley View, Page 1. www.wimberleyview.com/articles/2017/11/22/restoring-blue-hole-past ... See MoreSee Less

Play Scape Canopy Progress - These moms agreed in March that a canopy would be a huge improvement for the play scape which becomes too hot for kiddos to touch in our Texas summers. This spring, the Friends Board committed to this project, and a small committee conducted research for a design. Since then, the Parks Board has endorsed a sail canopy project as has the City Council. A generous donor has agreed to fund the technical drawings. Once drawings are in hand, fundraising will begin. Stay tuned! We'll need your support, so let us know if you'd like to help fundraise for this park project. ... See MoreSee Less
