Veramendi is an active community that encourages our residents to explore the great outdoors by providing them with multiple picnic areas, ball parks, pools, and playgrounds. Now, as of this month, we’re excited to announce that we’re adding to the growing list of New Braunfels parks with our very own pocket park!
For those of you new to the term, a pocket park is a small park that’s accessible to the general public. They’re often times created as a component of a public space in large building projects as is the case with Veramendi. We’ve allotted a percentage of the development to greenscapes for residents to enjoy!
Veramendi is dedicated to creating several pocket parks so that every home in the community will be within a quarter mile of one once the master plan is completed! The first of which, is 1.165 acres and can be found at the corner of Quince Ave and Nightshade Trail.
Of course, here at Veramendi we want you and your family (including your fur-babies) to enjoy the sun-filled days together! That’s why each pocket park in the community will include a covered playscape, pavillion, lawn area, a drinking fountain with accompanying pet bowl, and waste bag dispensers for the pet owners in our community!

If you’re looking for a one-on-one experience with the Texas hill country look no further than Landa park. This park stretches across 51 acres and includes many majestic sights such as Landa Lake, Comal Springs, and lucious brush with varieties of trees such as juniper, oak, and of course, pecan.
While people generally come for the natural scape the park has done a great job at creating many new attractions that keep families coming back for more! In fact, there are a variety of activities you could participate in while at Landa Park such as camping, swimming, golfing, fishing, or picnicking at the historic gazebo.
To get even more out of the park, be sure to check-in periodically with the Landa Recreation Center located at the park. The center offers a multitude of activities, special events, and seasonal programs.
Fischer Park is the largest park in New Braunfels and stretches a total of 62 acres. With plenty of room to play, the park includes hiking and biking trails, ponds, and a “sprayround” water feature for your family to enjoy!
Much like Landa Park and Animal World & Snake Farm Zoo, Fischer Park offers educational experiences with a variety of events and programs to help you explore the park, and the world! Some experiences include: the Monarch Waystation, Archeology Digs, fishing at the New Braunfels fishing ponds, and birthday party packages that change with the seasons.
There are many ways (and places) to enjoy the Texas Hill Country both in and around Veramendi. Whether it be our brand new pocket park or one of our older, larger, parks in the area, we hope you and your family get up and stay active in our beautiful community of New Braunfels.
