Foundation Presents Market Plaza Donation

On Tuesday, May 28th the New Braunfels Parks Foundation presented a check to the City of New Braunfels for $125,000. This donation will go towards the Market Plaza Renovations. For more information about the project click here.

The New Braunfels Parks Foundation has identified Market Plaza as the recipient of funds from Wein & Saengerfest for park improvements. Market Plaza is a 0.7 acre park located at 292 Tolle Street in Downtown New Braunfels. The park currently features benches, a drinking fountain and landscape bed. The New Braunfels Parks Foundation funded the installation of irrigation at Market Plaza in early 2014, using proceeds from the 2013 Wein and Saengerfest. To create a Master Plan for the park the Parks and Recreation Department sought input from stakeholders including the Downtown Association, Historic Landmark Commission, Downtown Board and neighborhood residents through a series of public meetings and an online survey
