New Braunfels celebrated an important milestone in 2016: the 80th Anniversary of the City of New Braunfels' acquisition of Landa Park. The Comal Springs, the heart of the park, are the largest natural springs in Texas and the American Southwest. The site has the phenomenal distinction of being consistent with the earliest human activity in North America. The park is designated as a State Archaeological Landmark because of the abundance of evidence of Native American Indian artifacts.
There is the wonderful Dolores & William Schumann Arboretum that was dedicated in 1981 which is home to over 80 species of trees! New Braunfels has a "Tree City USA" designation by the Arbor Day Foundation. Additional detailed information on Landa Park and a look at the online copy of the Arboretum brochure can be found at the City of New Braunfels/Parks & Recreation website.
