Hays County purchased Sentinel Peak Preserve in May 2022. This 530-plus acre property located just west of Wimberley will serve as a Golden-cheeked warbler habitat preserve. It will also feature a reservable riverfront park along a pristine stretch of the Blanco River.
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.
