Lindheimer Plaza has been a City Park since it was built in 1928. Several community groups have put their love and labor into the Plaza, which today stands as a wonderful representation of New Braunfels history. The Plaza holds the distinction of a Lone Star Legacy Park, one of the highest honors that can be bestowed on a park.


The City Park, Lindheimer Plaza, was built in 1928 by the order of the Women’s Civic Improvement Club (WCIC). The Plaza is sparsely planted with several trees and a flowerbed, which was created in 1962 by the Garden Club Council of New Braunfels. The centerpiece of the flowerbed is a monument dedicated to Lindheimer.

In 1964, a marker honoring “Texas Germans in the Civil War” was placed in Lindheimer Plaza by the Texas State Historical Survey Committee.

2013 saw a partnership between New Braunfels Parks and Recreation and the New Braunfels Garden Club to revitalize the Plaza. Today, the Park sees an estimated 350-500 visitors each year.
