History of Boerne City Lake Park
The City of Boerne gained approval from the Texas Water Commission in 1972 to construct and maintain a dam and reservoir on Cibolo Creek for municipal purposes and to aid in flood control. With the dam’s construction, Boerne City Lake was born.
The City gained further approval in 1979 to utilize water from the reservoir for domestic purposes, ensuring another water source for citizens. In 2005, City Council approved the development of City Lake Park, providing the wonderful recreation opportunities the community knows and loves today.
