This month, Garner State Park celebrates its 75th anniversary. Garner State Park is one of the most visited state parks in the state, and is named after Vice President John Nance Garner. Unfortunately, due to weather the anniversary celebration has been postponed. A bit of irony, given that the original date for Garner State Park’s Grand Opening was scheduled for April 29th,1941, but was postponed to June 1st,1941 due to inclement weather. Senator Uresti, who was scheduled to be the keynote speaker, released this statement about the states relationship with Garner State Park:
“We have the opportunity to grow our parks, to protect even more of the beautiful lands of Texas and allow them to be accessible to all her citizens.
