The company stayed until May 1937. CCC work at the park included building the park road, culverts, and other park infrastructure. the caretaker's dwelling, garage, a storage facility with water storage tank and entrance portals.
The park was originally called Kerrville State Park. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Commissioners changed the name to Kerrville-Schreiner State Park in 1990. On February 13, 2004, the park transferred back to the City of Kerrville under authority of Texas House Bill 2108.
The park is home to an abundance of wildlife including white-tailed deer and blackbuck, axis deer, rabbits, fox, birds, and butterflies. The butterfly garden in the park is a certified monarch waystation.

  • Our favorite place for family trips! Restrooms are always nice and clean and stocked with toilet paper. Fourth of July is always really packed but if you stay long enough you can see a nice firework display.
  • This is just a beautiful park to go hiking. And if you ask me, go early in the morning when it isn't too hot in the area. I in general try to go there at sunrise or even earlier so that I can get out when it get's too hot in the summer time. I wonder how the weather will be in the winter time but I will probably go for afternoon hikes as the weather should be awesome.
