Goal: River Ranch County Park is a beautiful raw wild area. Goals are to preserve and conserve so that future generations can visit the park and experience the awesome footprint of nature as it used to be in a different time.
Project Leader: David Armstrong
RRCP is a new park under development in western Williamson County just outside Liberty Hill. Texas. The Goodwater Chapter is involved with the ongoing development of the park, which so far involves historic documentation regarding the property. Good Water members Dave Armstrong, Dave Gage, and Jim Haley are the photographic team while Nancy Philips has graciously agreed to produce the oral history. Mary Ann Melton is the videographer. The team is currently researching historical events involving the 1,000-acre ranch which makes up the park’s territory. Dave Armstrong is the coordinator of our chapter and the park superintendent, Jeff North. Jeff provided a brief update regarding RRCP. (1) The design firm hired by Williamson County Parks is on board and visited the property a few weeks ago. (2) A survey has been conducted for the San Gabriel River that borders one edge of the park, and it looks like the park will have navigable water to Bagdad Road, and(3) The community clean-up/work day will be January 30, 2016, and will be the first restoration project for the park.
David Armstrong is anxious for all chapter members to visit the park and to marvel at the park’s pristine landscape, its historical ranch facilities, and to explore the low water crossing on the San Gabriel. RRCP is truly a wondrous place to enjoy throughout the year as it has all of the elements of a true “nature park.” (All park visits must be coordinated and approved by David.) If you have questions about the park or would like to volunteer to assist with activities involving the park, please contact David Armstrong.
