UPDATE 5/3
A short section of the hike and bike trail in San Gabriel Park will be closed May 4 – 18 due to the removal of a small bridge, which is located near the confluence of the North and South Forks of the San Gabriel River. New drainage culverts are being added under the trail. The small pedestrian bridge is just east of the larger pedestrian bridge where geese congregate. Users of the hike and bike trail will need to detour on Morrow Street in this trail section. 

NOTICE: Due to ongoing renovations to San Gabriel Park, Morrow St. may be closed periodically for drainage and road work. As part of our Parks ADA Transition program, parts of the trail will also be closed intermittently throughout the spring and summer to facilitate reconstruction. Please proceed with caution through this area and be aware of construction equipment.

Meandering right through the heart of Georgetown are the North Fork and the South Fork of the San Gabriel River. Along the banks of the San Gabriel River where the two forks meet, between the river and Austin Avenue, you’ll find one of the most beautiful parks in the state of Texas.

San Gabriel Park was designated a Lone Star Legacy Park by the Texas Recreation & Parks Society in March 2012. San Gabriel Park is one of only nine parks in Texas to be awarded this designation in its inaugural year. These parks were chosen for their historical prominence within their communities and the state by providing natural respite and social interaction as those communities were founded, developed, and prospered.

San Gabriel Park is graced with 200-year-old oak trees that offer shady spots for family picnics. The 180-acre park also provides space for concerts and festivals, as well as fields for soccer, football, lacrosse and baseball.

A hike and bike trail goes through the park, including a 1.6 mile loop in the park and other segments that connect to Blue Hole ParkRivery Park, and all the way to Lake Georgetown. There is also a 9-hole disc golf course at the north end of the park.


San Gabriel Park Improvements

San Gabriel Park is currently undergoing Phase 1 of improvements. The project includes a new playground with sensory walk, improved entry and directional signage, and the restoration of the spring habitat to its natural state through the re-establishment of the spring channel and native vegetation.

Other improvements will include parking, roadway, utility and drainage improvements; realignment of the Morrow Street and Chamber Way intersection; additional restrooms and pavilions; upgraded park furnishings throughout; and trail and accessibility improvements throughout the park.

The approximately $2.5 million project will be completed by Georgetown-based Weststar Construction and should be completed in January 2018. Austin-based RVi Planning and Landscape Architecture completed the master plan and design.

City Council approved the construction contract at its regularly scheduled Jan. 24 meeting. Funding for the project was approved by voters in a 2008 bond package.

Access to the park will not be affected; however, short-term road closures and detours are expected to happen throughout construction in the Phase 1 area. The San Gabriel Park Master Plan, which was completed in June 2015, identified improvements to be completed in phases to limit park disruptions.


San Gabriel Park Master Plan

A master plan for San Gabriel Park was completed in June 2015. This master plan was a culmination of  public input and existing conditions to define the vision for future park development and programming. However, plans such as this are typically conceptual but do assist in providing a framework for future planning and development activities. The master plan for San Gabriel Park proposes four phases for renovation. This phased approach allows areas of the park to remain open and usable. Funding for the improvements to San Gabriel Park were part of the voter approved 2008 Park Bond.
