Williamson County Parks Department launched their first-ever Parks Pass that will offer special benefits for those interested in spending time outdoors at a Williamson County park facility.

The goal of the program is to encourage residents to visit county parks and reward those who are frequent users of county parks with discounts.  

“We are excited to launch the new parks pass program. We worked really hard to build in user benefits that have an application at all Williamson County park locations,” said Williamson County Parks Department Senior Director Russell Fishbeck.

“I believe that park users will find value in the pass and that their loyalty and repeat use will be rewarded accordingly. As the holiday season nears, the Parks Pass will make a wonderful gift for your family and friends who also enjoy the outdoors.”

The Parks Pass will waive some day-use fees and provide discounts on overnight camping, and pavilion rentals, among other benefits like: 

  • Unlimited free day use at River Ranch County Park, when the County’s newest addition opens later this year.  This benefit applies to the passholder and up to 14 guests in the same non-commercial vehicle 
  • Discounts on overnight camping
  • Equestrian use fee discount 
  • Unlimited disc golf play (restrictions apply)
  • Discount ($10) on Open Arena Ride at Expo Center
  • Discount ($10) on Group Pavilion rentals

On Sept. 4, 2020, Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell signed an order terminating the outdoor burning ban prior to its 90-day expiration period. 

A burn ban was issued August 25, 2020, due to circumstances that posed possible safety hazards in unincorporated areas in Williamson County. The Williamson County Fire Marshal and Office of Emergency Management recommended for the County Judge to lift the burn ban as a result of improved conditions.
