Light the Island

A glowing opportunity has come to the Hill Country during the holiday season. The City of Kerrville Parks and Recreation Department plans to decorate the trees of Tranquility Island with Christmas lights in an effort to bring the holiday spirit to Louise Hays Park and The River Trail. This project will be phased over the next several years and the goal is to eventually light the entire island of trees (within reason) from the Tranquility Island bridge to the Lemos Street Bridge.

Lights for the Island will turn on, and will remain up and lit, from the Holiday Lighted Parade, November 21, 2020, to the beginning of January.
