Friends of McKinney Falls State Park

What's a Friends Group?

Friends Groups are independent non-profit partner organizations created by people just like you.

McKinney Falls State Park sees over 300,000 people annually and has a full time staff of only 15 people!

That's where we come in!

We are the helping hands to aid the only state park within Austin city limits in whatever way we can; whether that's time, talent or financial support.

Join us in helping to support one of the last wild places in Austin and to help us tell the story of a place that's been visited by people for over 8,000 years.

Be a part of the legacy.



The mission of the Friends of McKinney Falls State Park is to serve as responsible stewards of the cultural and natural resources, support educational programs, and foster an inclusive environment for present and future generations. We will do this by giving our time, our talent, and our financial support to McKinney Falls State Park.



We envision an urban green space that supports an interactive experience and inspires people to develop a lifelong appreciation and respect for nature and the legacy of Texas history.


Membership Commitment:

You carry your membership card in your heart. The only membership cost is your time and talent.

We have monthly meetings at McKinney Falls State Park (usually the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm). Check the calendar to verify.
