SAN ANTONIO – Texas State Parks is celebrating 100 years in 2023, and to commemorate the big anniversary, parks are holding a variety of events throughout the year.

A news release from Texas Parks and Wildlife Department states that every state park will host at least one special event to celebrate the centennial anniversary.

H-E-B has partnered with TPWD and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation by donating $1 million to help fund the events.

“We invite all Texans to experience these precious public lands that truly belong to them,” Rodney Franklin, director of TPWD’s Texas State Parks, said in the release. “We hope this is the year every Texan visits at least one state park. We are going to take advantage of the excitement about the Centennial to showcase everything our parks have to offer, and we’re thrilled that H-E-B will be supporting our celebration.”
