About the La Vernia Park Foundation

Mission and ObjectivesPhlox

The mission of the La Vernia Park Foundation is to improve the public park facilities in La Vernia, Texas. Park Foundation members meet regularily to identify needed improvements, get the necessary funding, and manage the project to completion.

The Park Foundation also works closely with the City of La Vernia Parks and Recreation Department to approve all park improvements.


The primary fundraiser for our organization is the annual La Vernia BBQ Cookoff, held each year during the 2nd weekend in August. The BBQ Cookoff is a 2-day IBCA-sanctioned event with lots of activities for the whole family. See the La Vernia BBQ Cookoff page for more information.

The Park Foundation also actively pursues grants to help with larger improvement projects. See our Park Improvements page for more pictures of past and recent additions to the park.

Hard Work

Installing PlayscapeThe Park Foundation members do not merely manage the park improvements, but in many cases supply the manpower to make it happen. Here foundation members are hard at work installing the playscape, one of the most popular additions to the park.
