     At first glance, Boerne City Park appears as a typical urban park, complete with sport fields, tennis courts and outdoor swimming pool. In addition, a rare gem is found along the banks of the Cibolo Creek. Tucked away in a corner of the park you’ll find the 100 acre Cibolo Nature Center. This wildlife area is a small remnant of the Herff Ranch, a 10,000 acre spread that dates back to 1852.
     Although the Center is geared for all ages, focus is centered on education, after school programs and summertime outdoor projects. The Friends of the Cibolo Wilderness represents a grass-roots organization that was instrumental in creating this unique wildlife preserve. A total of six nature trails wind through an array of diverse habitats, including Texas prairie, marsh, woodland and river environments. Thanks to an eager group of volunteers, the Center presents a carefully planned addition to the park.
