Guide to Dripping Springs - - Front page -

With 94 ded­i­cated acres, in­clud­ing the 40-acre Drip­ping Springs Sports and Re­cre­ation Park, the 25-acre Founders Me­mo­rial Park, and the 14-acre Karhan Park, this is a com­mu­nity that has made a se­ri­ous com­mitt­ment to park­land.

“For a city of our size we have a lot of park­land,” said Deputy City Ad­min­is­tra­tor Ginger Faught. “We take a lot of pride in our parks. For many cit­i­zens, this is the only time they come into con­tact with the city. We’re es­pe­cially proud of our pool, our play­ing fields, and our pavil­ion that can be rented.”

The Sports and Re­cre­ation Park is the busiest, with a UIL base­ball field, UIL soc­cer field, UIL soft­ball field, Ju­nior Var­sity base­ball field, sand vol­ley­ball court, mul­tiuse con­crete court, wild­scape gar­den, U14 soc­cer field, U-12 soc­cer field, two U10 soc­cer fields, two U-8 soc­cer fields, four U-6 soc­cer fields, a walk­ing trail, four washer toss pits, four horse­shoe pits, a playscape, pic­nic ta­bles, bar­be­cue pits and benches.

Founders Me­mo­rial Park in­cludes a U14 soc­cer field, one U-10 soc­cer field, one U-8 soc­cer field, two foot­ball prac­tice fields, a swim­ming pool, pavil­ion, walk­ing trail, wild­scape gar­den, playscapes, swings, and pic­nic ta­bles.

Karhan Park in­cludes two soft­ball fields, and is used reg­u­larly by the Drip­ping Springs Adult Soft­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (DSASA).

The Sports and Re­cre­ation Park was built on land do­nated by the Drip­ping Springs In­de­pen­dent School Dis­trict (DSISD) with a grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife De­part­ment (TPWD). DSISD still uses and main­tains the UIL sports facil- ities there.

Fees are de­ter­mined ac­cord­ing to res­i­dency (whether a user lives in the city and/or the DSISD) as well as whether or not an or­ga­ni­za­tion is profit or non-profit.
