New Braunfels civic groups call for Landa Park upgrades

The Friends for the Historic Preservation of Land Park and the New Braunfels Garden Club recently recommended that city leaders begin with a proposed rejuvenation of the 48-acre Landa Park.

The park needs an irrigation system, rock walls along the river need to be restored and more protection added to stop riverbank erosion, said Bill Kolodzie, president of the Friends for the Historic Preservation of Landa Park.

A design firm which recently developed a comprehensive park plan for the city estimated that it would cost between $6 million and $8.5 million to completely restore and preserve the historic park located along the river. The first phase would close the park to through traffic, install an irrigation system, stabilize riverbanks and reconfigure parking at an estimated cost of $3.5 million to $4.5 million. The two civic groups would like for construction to begin in 2010 and be complete in 2012. The second phase calls for reconfiguring picnic areas, establishing a center esplanade and improving the park's arboretum at a cost of between $2.5 million and $4 million.
