Where it begins.

The Comal River is the heart and soul of New Braunfels, that is why we are rejuvenating 16 acres at the headwaters of the Comal River where people can learn, have fun, and experience history and nature. We’re strengthening the relationship between the community and nature by showcasing the significance of the Comal Springs.
