New Braunfels reopened its river parks on Wednesday but the public should wear masks and observe rules for social distancing and hand washing.

Gov. Greg Abbott’s June 26 orders banning river outfitters from renting tubes or transporting customers remains in effect.

“Residents and visitors are asked to enjoy the city’s beautiful parks and rivers, but are asked to do so with the health and safety of all in mind,” the city said in a statement. “Those that choose to visit New Braunfels amenities have the responsibility to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and should commit to following the governor’s orders and safety precautions, including social distancing, mask wearing and hand washing.”

Parks along the Comal and Guadalupe rivers that reopened this week include Prince Solms Park, Hinman Island, River Acres Park and Cypress Bend Park.

Amenities now also available include the Landa Park Wading Pool, the Frisbee golf curse, basketball courts and tennis courts.

Parking for these areas also reopened, but parking fees for the summer season have ended.
