A ceremony for the dedication of Johnson Park as a Lone Star Legacy Park will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, April 22, at the park's amphitheater.
“Johnson Park is almost 130 years old and it now is one of only 29 parks to receive the Lone Star Legacy Award,” said Robert Moss, City of Marble Falls Parks & Recreation Director.
The award is conferred by the Texas Recreation and Park Society (TRAPS), a non-profit organization affiliated with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). Johnson Park is joining the ranks of Lone Star Legacy Parks that include Austin's Zilker Municipal Park, San Gabriel Park in Georgetown, Landa Park in New Braunfels and Artesian Park in Corpus Christi.

Legacy Park award on Marble Falls council agenda tonight

Johnson Park, now a Lone Star Legacy Park, has been central to Marble Falls since the 1800s. Today the park, with paths, boat launches, playground equipment and ducks and wildlife to enjoy, still is place for young and old to enjoy among oaks likely older than the 130-year-old park itself.
