Dripping Springs Ranch Park is owned and operated by the City of
Dripping Springs and has been a part of the City’s recreational
facilities since 2008 with the purchase of the Harrison family homestead
and working ranch. The acquisition was made possible by funds from Hays
County park bond and funds dedicated by the City. The acquisition and
planned improvements were right on target with the City’s master park
plans for a community gathering area with large open spaces. The new
facilities became a reality with generous funding and matching grants
from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Lower Colorado River Authority.
The Park has also been embraced with generous gifts from citizens,
private donors and local businesses.
The Park opened in 2008 and is enjoyed by thousands of users. It is a
very popular park for horse riders who participate in competitive and
leisure equine events as well as for individuals and families who are
attracted to the many outdoor recreational opportunities, including
hiking, washer pitching, wildlife viewing, primitive camping and
gatherings. It is the perfect spot for a family picnic or a special
occasion for reunions and weddings.
The Park is home to annual festivals that attract folks from all areas
of the Hill Country and beyond. With the additional new facilities, the
Park is now home to a versatile venue that is one of the largest in the
Texas Hill Country.
