Geocache Description:


As you enter this area you will be greeted by a bust of the founder of both New Braunfels and Fredericksburg. We are sister cities. Bring your family and friends and picnic here. Evenings under the stars and low light are very relaxing and you may recall many pleasantries. Many weekends activities can be found here as well.

Below are coordinates, you really don't need them but..., on this same property which are the locations honoring people from this community who were instrumental in the building of this community, state, nation and world.
