The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) has now opened the Pedernales River Nature Park, LCRA’s newest park, for limited public recreational day-use, such as fishing and picnicking. LCRA closed on the 222-acre tract of riverfront land, known locally as the Rainbow Ranch Trout Farm, on Nov. 7, 2008. The property is centrally located and easily accessible to all citizens in Blanco County.
Master planning for the property began Fall 2010. Click here for updates.
Pending the park’s future development, typical LCRA access and facility use fees will be temporarily waived. During the expected twenty-four month planning, designing, and development phases, the park will offer limited day-use options like fishing and picnicking. As with other LCRA nature parks, admission fees will be charged and rental fees collected for facility usage once the new recreational facilities are constructed and available for public use.
