Johnson Park will be recognized on the afternoon of April 22 with a Lone Star Legacy Park marker, but event on Sunday, April 17, will be the kind of use that created that legacy: a central gathering place for the City of Marble Falls as early as 1887.

The 5th Annual St. Andrew Picnic in the Park will be held there, as gatherings surely were 130 years ago. The St. Andrew Presbyterian congregation will be joined by Fellowship Baptist Church and Trinity Episcopal Church to host an 11 a.m. worship service in the park amphitheater.
