The City of Bastrop takes great pride in its city parks. The newest jewel in our Park system is the Bob Bryant Park. The park is scheduled to be finished and dedicated in April, 2004. Tree planting to remember the Space Shuttle Columbia occurred  Saturday, February 7, 2004 at the park during the Trees 2004 event. This event is organized by the City of Bastrop in partnership with TreeFolks whose mission is to grow urban forests, planting and education.
