Boerne's New Amphitheater
A beautiful amphitheater will soon grace the grounds of Boerne’s Civic Campus, through a partnership of the Boerne Public Library Foundation, the Majestic Ranch Arts Foundation, and the City of Boerne. The beautiful outdoor venue will gracefully complement the design of the existing structures on the Campus, which, in addition to the Patrick Heath Public Library, include the Bookshop under the Windmill and the Heritage Plaza. Attention to detail, material selection and sensitive site layout will accomplish a pleasing integration of this new public feature into Boerne’s Hill Country Mile. Construction is underway and is expected to be completed in Autumn 2015
