Schreiner Park – Kerrville, Tx 09/16/17

In 1934, the City of Kerrville donated 517 acres to the State Parks Board for development of a state park. Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Company 1823CV arrived in January 1935 to begin construction on project SP-58. The company stayed until May 1937. CCC work at the park included building the park roads, culverts, and other park infrastructure. the caretaker’s dwelling, garage, a storage facility with water storage tank and entrance portals.

The park was originally called Kerrville State Park. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Commissioners changed the name to Kerrville-Schreiner State Park in 1990. On February 13, 2004, the park transferred back to the City of Kerrville under authority of Texas House Bill 2108.

Unfortunately our walk in the wood did not include any of the CCC buildings, I think it did include one culvert.

    I think Kerrville is one of the prettiest places! Many years ago I drove through and always wanted to go back. My sister just went and she said it was just as awesome as I remembered. Thanks for the Memories!
