New Website Showcases County Parks
Learn more about the 75-acre Hidden Valley Sports Park south of Canyon Dam using a new website created by Comal County.
A new website showcasing the beauty and history of Comal County parks is live for residents to explore.
The site showcases the beauty and history of Comal County parks, according to Robert Boyd, the county’s parks manager.
It was created by the county’s geographic information systems (GIS) mapping team and includes photos, interactive maps and brief histories of the acquisition and development of the county’s four public parks.

“A lot of people, especially if they’re new to the area, don’t know that Comal County operates these four terrific parks for the public,” said Robert Boyd, the county’s parks manager. “Our GIS and parks teams did a great job working together to produce a website that captures some of what makes our parks unique.”
Comal County operates two sports parks and two nature parks:
- James C. Curry Nature Center, a 52-acre park on the side of a hill south of Canyon Lake featuring a 0.75-mile walking trail;
- Hidden Valley Sports Park, whose 75 acres include a recreation center, nine soccer fields, six baseball fields, two football fields and a softball complex southeast of Canyon Dam;
- Jumbo Evans Sports Park, which features seven soccer fields, six baseball fields, six tennis courts and a football field on its 65 acres off U.S. Highway 281 near Spring Branch;
- and Kleck Park, a 43.5-acre densely wooded property east of Bulverde featuring three looped walking trails totaling over a mile.
