Rathgeber Natural Resource Park

The future Rathgeber Natural Resource Park is a donation of 300 acres of land from Dick Rathgeber and Rathgeber Investment Company. This land is located adjacent to the Headwaters Subdivision.

The future Rathgeber Natural Resource Park will not only protect 300 acres of pristine Texas Hill Country and the convergence zones of Barton Creek and Little Barton Creek, but it will provide public access to passively recreate, immerse in nature, and explore the Texas Night Sky. With the addition of this land, the City’s public parkland increases from 271 to 571 acres.

The land is not open to the public at this time. The City is formulating a master park plan and will be working with stakeholders, community members, and outside firms to ensure that Rathgeber Natural Resource Park will be the best in class and offer much to the Dripping Springs community. The development of the master plan and the creation of Rathgeber Natural Resource Park will take 2-4 years to complete.
