The New Braunfels parks director said the city is having a little trouble keeping up with growth.

He added that the chamber is working to preserve New Braunfels’ German heritage, ‘in the ‘40s. '50s and even ‘80s. there were grandmas and grandpas and mammas and dad dys telling their children not to speak German in the playground at school,” he said, explaining the anti-German mood of the country at the time.
