McKinney Falls State Park

Friday evening, January 23 beginning at 6:30 PM TfSP will host a reception and ‘Brag Night’ at the park dining hall.  Food and drink will be provided, and we will have an opportunity to see short programs on several Park Friends Groups’ activities.

Saturday January 24 we will begin with late registration and coffee at 8:30 AM.  The program will begin at 9 AM.  A BBQ lunch will be served in the park on Saturday.

Registration is $30 for both days, or for those unable to attend both days, it will be $10, Friday only; $20 Saturday only.  The fee covers meals.  Please contact Linda Evans, leevans@texas.net, or phone 512.444.8079 with the number of persons attending for meals. 

A preliminary program for Friday evening and Saturday is attached and a registration form is included below.  Late registration will be accepted at Saturday morning registration.  For more meeting information, or to ‘register’ by phone or e-mail, contact Linda Evans, leevans@texas.net, phone 512.444.8079

Much of Saturday’s program will focus on efforts to achieve full funding for State and local parks from the sales tax on the sale of certain items and how you can encourage support for that issue. 

Everyone interested in the future of Texas State and local parks and is encouraged to attend to learn more about how they can communicate information to their legislators about the economic and other benefits of parks to their local communities.  

McKinney Falls SP is located 13 miles southeast of the State Capitol in Austin off US Highway 183.   The park office is open until 7:30 pm Friday and Sat.  Entry fees are waived for the event.  Identify yourself at the gate as guests for the TfSP activities, and you will be issued a permit for your vehicle. 

Take McKinney Falls Parkway, from US 183 South to the park entrance.  From I-35, take East William Cannon Dr. east to McKinney Parkway Falls, turn left and travel 1+ mi. to the park.  Call 512.243.1643 or see http://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/mckinney-falls for information about the park
