Parks and Recreation

​Our Vision

Build, maintain, and offer quality of life amenities in Marble Falls that are second to none - parks, recreational facilities, hike and bike trails, walkable connected sidewalks, public lake access and waterfront development; and age appropriate recreational opportunities.

There is approximately 149 acres of park land, trails, greenbelts, and facilities in Marble Falls. Johnson, Falls Creek and Lakeside Parks are adjacent to one another and are very popular for family outings.

These parks are also used for some of Marble Falls’ largest special events like Howdy-Roo, Mayfest, Children's Day, July 4th Celebration, Lakefest, and the Walkway of Lights.


The Parks and Recreation Department offers summer aquatics programs; and, partners with local youth/adult leagues, civic organizations, and recreational contractors to provide recreational and educational opportunities for all ages. The Parks and Recreation Department also facilitates the use and enjoyment of our park facilities and Lakeside Pavilion.

Parks and Recreation Commission

The Parks and Recreation Department interfaces with the Parks and Recreation Commission; which is a volunteer citizen committee that serves in an advisory capacity and makes policy recommendations to the City Council concerning the acquisition, maintenance, operation and use of parks and open spaces within the city.
