The City of New Braunfels is building upon previous community planning efforts to study and develop Alligator Creek Linear Park and Trail. It is identified as an Opportunity Area in the City’s Hike & Bike Trail Plan, which means it should be evaluated in more depth to determine opportunities and constraints. The project study area includes west Alligator Creek (west of IH-35) and east Alligator Creek (east of IH-35). See map.  As New Braunfels grows, the demand for access to parks and trail will increase.  increasing access can play an important factor in that balance and the quality of life. We need your feedback to help develop the vision for linear park and trail including park amenities, programs, connections, and future expansion. For more information please visit the Project webpage. Thank you for your time and feedback!
