Our local parks have been the places many of us use to refresh, recharge, recreate, and relax. The New Braunfels Parks Foundation hopes you will take 2022 and make it a year to celebrate our parks! Many events returning in 2022 will bring us back together, check out the upcoming events and new events for 2022!

Many exciting events return this year, including:

Dos Rios Splash & dash 5k walk/run and kids run – The 11th annual Dos Rios Splash and Dash 5k on May 18th run from Cypress Bend Park to Prince Solms Park and then back to Cypress Bend Park. For the chute challenge, when you get to Prince Solms park you will grab a tube and float the river through the tube chute. You will then continue the rest of your run. (Yes you will be running with wet shoes unless you take them off prior to the chute.) Tubes are provided by the city for the Chute Challenge.
