Tales on the Trails 

The City of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department, San Marcos Public Library, and Community Action, Inc. are partnering to bring you Tales on the Trails in conjunction with Roll & Read! The April Tales on the Trails and Roll & Read event will be set up between San Marcos Plaza Park and Children's Park and will feature "Mermaids are Magical - You Can Be Too" by Marieta Hutchison. You and your family are invited to take a self-guided tour along the accessible trail between San Marcos Plaza Park and Children's Park, starting at the mermaid statute in Plaza Park. 

Please show respect when enjoying our programs and beautiful natural areas by not removing or destroying items along the trail system. Thanks for helping make this program successful for our whole community!
