Garey Park

Garey Park is Georgetown’s biggest park. You may enjoy 500 acres of beautiful hill country landscape at the spot. The building of the park began in the spring of 2017, and the gates opened in 2018.

The 525-acre Garey Park property was donated in 2004 by Jack and Camille Garey, along with $5 million for park development. The park borders the South San Gabriel River and is located between Georgetown and Cedar Park.

Voters authorized a bond for an extra $10 million for park building in 2008. When completed, Garey Park will be roughly 1.5 times the size of Austin’s Zilker Park.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the park took place on March 31, 2017, and construction is currently ongoing. Garey Park had a series of events to commemorate its grand inauguration on June 9, 2018.

There is a playscape, a splash pad, a dog park, an equestrian arena, the Garey House event space, pavilions, four miles of hiking trails, and six miles of equestrian trails in the park. Park standards, an access gate, restrooms, and a maintenance facility are among the other features.

With features similar to those seen in state parks, this park is undeniably a gem for the City of Georgetown, and one that our residents and tourists will be able to enjoy for many years to come.”

The Georgetown City Council approved a $10.7 million deal with Pflugerville-based Ritter-Botkin Prime Development Co. on February 14, 2017.

Garey Park, designed by Halff Associates of Austin, appears to be a great site for the City of Georgetown. Garey Park’s rehabilitation cost a total of $13.5 million.

Though much of the initial work was accomplished prior to the park’s opening in June 2018, the city expects to do much more with the park’s vast acreage. Garey Park already looks fantastic, but new parts will be added in the next years. Visitors should be prepared for even more!

The city supplied information from the park’s first full fiscal year, which concluded in December 2019. Some of the information was shocking. Despite higher non-resident entrance fees, more than 70% of park visitors were not from Georgetown. The park’s operating costs were $777,412 while its revenue was $379,813.

Garey Mansion

Garey House combines Texas Hill Country charm with Tuscan flair. Garey House is part of Garey Park, a 525-acre public park located along the San Gabriel River in Georgetown, Texas. The arena bears the name of Jack and Cammy Garey, who donated their private ranch to the City of Georgetown in 2004. The park was officially opened in June of 2018.

Garey House offers both small and large indoor and outdoor event and conference spaces.

Weddings, reunions, fundraisers, social events, business events, and other events can be held in the 9,500 square foot facility. The home lends a Tuscan touch to any occasion, assisting in setting the tone for the day or night.

The inside event area at Garey House is roughly 2,000 square feet and can accommodate 70-100 individuals. The property includes about 7,500 square feet of outdoor event space, making it ideal for larger events of up to 200 people.

Garey Park Trails 

Walking and Running Paths

Hiking Paths

Garey Park offers more isolated routes designed to access more rough terrain, sometimes composed of compacted dirt, for those wishing to travel off the usual path.

Not sure where to go or what to look for? On a regular basis, the park offers guided nature hikes.
