Jen Harbuck, administrative assistant at Kendall County's Joshua Springs Park and Preserve off Farm Road 289 near Comfort, explains that the 405-acre park is closed to the public during construction on a covered 7,000 square-foot pavilion with adjacent restoom, a second restroom, playground for children ages 2 to 12, 10 picnic tables, two observation piers overlooking a lake, birding blinds, 1½ miles of trail and two birthday pavilions. The Allen Keller Co. of Fredericksburg started work in September with a 180-day completion timeline. The county purchased the property in March 2007 and received a Texas Parks and Wildlife Department matching grant to pay for the new facilities. The 3,000 square-foot event center atop Ring Mountain can be reserved for any type of event by phoning Harbuck at 830-537-3470. Also open are the James Kiehl River Bend Park at 118 River Bend Road and the Kreutzberg Canyon Natural Area at 143 Mark Twain.
