Funding for the project comes via the county’s hotel-motel venue tax.

Isla Blanca Park, with its mile-long beach, fishing jetty, pavilions and 600 RV sites, attracts more than a million visitors a year. 

Construction is expected to be completed and the additions ready for visitors by late spring or early summer 2018.

The amphitheater, multi-purpose building and the new parking lot will be located just to the east of the current boat launching site, with the amphitheater right on the water overlooking Brazos Santiago Pass.​

Isla Blanca Park is located at 33174 State Park Rd. 100.
