On June 7, 2022, Hays County entered into an interlocal agreement with the City of Dripping Springs and the Dripping Springs Community Foundation for the development of the first skatepark in Dripping Springs. The Hays County Parks Bond will fund the construction and the City of Dripping Springs will provide the land and operate the skatepark once it opens.
In 2020, Hays County residents voted for the Parks & Open Spaces Bond (Proposition A) which called for the issuance of $75 million in general bonds to fund parks, open spaces, conservation lands, and other recreational opportunities over the next several years.
