The Escondido Creek Parkway Project is an attractive, linear nature-based park with features that allow the community new opportunities to sit, stroll, run, play, and enjoy the outdoors along a waterway full of benefits. Escondido Creek is a modest, ephemeral waterway that runs through Karnes County, Texas. With its lush vegetation, effortless accessibility, and modern recreation amenities, Escondido Creek Parkway is, a gathering place for the community to relish their time in nature and with each other. The Parkway provides unparalleled opportunities to recreate a native landscape with sustainable infrastructure practices. Additionally, it functions as a safe thoroughfare, connecting Joe Gulley Park and sports fields to homes and schools by providing trails under Highway 181.
