Lake Brownwood State Park

History

Lake Brownwood State Park, located in Brown County, is 537.5 acres acquired by deed from the Brown County Water Improvement District No. 1 in 1934. The park was opened in 1938.

Near the geographical center of Texas, the park is situated on Lake Brownwood, a 7,300-surface-acre reservoir created by damming Pecan Bayou, which is a tributary of the Colorado River. Many structures in use today were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930s from timber and native rock found in the park.
