River Trail Update

 

The first segment of the River Trail project was completed December 15, 2012, which extends from the Riverside Nature Center to tranquility Island in Louise Hays Park.

This segment has pedestrian access from the back entrance of the Library stairway near the new playscape. A trail head is also at the Riverside Nature Center.

The next segment was designed to proceed through Louise Hays and Lehmann & Monroe Parks, and continue to Kerrville-Schreiner Park. The grand opening of this segment was opened in June 2015. These beautiful trail segments have already seen considerable use.

That renovation included the addition of new park facilities, a spray-ground, small amphitheater, pavilion and BBQ upgrades, parking and roadway improvements, utility and lighting upgrades, restroom improvements, and ADA improvements for the handicapped. The cost for this is supported through 4B funds through the Kerrville Economic Improvement Corporation, commonly referred to as EIC.

Now the river trail is open from Kerrville-Schreiner Park going west to Riverside Nature Center.

Phase III is currently under construction and will end at Lowery Park on Guadalupe Street. It is anticipated to be completed by the end of fall 2015.

The River Trail is a wonderful new asset for Kerrville and utilization is increasing each day.

The river trail was originally approved at 6 miles for $6 million continuing to Knap Park behind Chili's.

Stopping the trail at Lowery Park will bring the trail to approximately 4.2 miles at a cost of approximately $5 million. Due to cost over runs, there is not enough money allocated to complete the river trail as planned. Therefore, stopping the river trail at Lowery Park will leave only about $1 million for further river trail / park improvements.
