    Newscast: Purgatory Creek Greenspace

San Marcos has acquired 96-acres of land to add to the 570-acre Purgatory Creek natural area. The land was given to the city by The Trust for Public Land, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing cities with local conservation areas. The Trust for Public Land purchased the area from a private owner for $1.6 million dollars with help from Texas Parks and Wildlife, the US Fish and Wildlife Service and private donors. Council member Kim Porterfield said she feels this was the right time to acquire the land.

“Because it is on the aquifer recharge zone and it has some habit areas, not just for endangered species, but just for a lot of wildlife.”
– Kim Porterfield

This is the second expansion of the city’s largest parkland and is a part of a larger plan to connect Purgatory Creek with Prospect Park.
