The Hays County Parks, Open Space and Natural Areas Master Plan was developed in 2002, updated in 2006 and has just been finalized (April 2012)
In order to be considered for Texas Parks & Wildlife Department grants, counties are required to have a new parks master plan every 10 years, with updates to existing plans every five years.
“The plan recognizes the need to fill unmet needs in unincorporated areas of the county and to complement the work being done by municipalities. Among the priorities is a need for parks and public spaces that preserve water corridors and special areas that reflect the attributes of the Hill Country that initially attracted residents to the area. It calls for Hays County to take a leadership role in addressing the priorities in the plan and to seek collaborative ways for parks funding and development.”
