Event comments

The path takes you past an upscale RV park, the only one in South Texas that has a rating of 5 and 10-10-10. You are welcome to go to the office for further information. The path takes you past Retama Village, a gated community. Flowers bloom most of the time. Be watchful for any number of birds, many that are unique to this part of the U.S. There is little shade on this walk, so we recommend you do it in cooler weather.
