Parks & Nature
The natural area park is owned by the City of Grey Forest that purchased 42 acres off the corner of Scenic Loop on Menchaca Road. Easy walk to the park, and easy walking/hiking trails are clearly marked. Like the surrounding lands, this the park site has a rich history - structures that date to 1852 when John Conrad Beckmann and his wife, Regina settled the land as a weekend retreat. In 1853, the farm was the site of an Indian raid that would result in the deaths of the farm’s caretaker and his family.

Arts & Culture
Mark's work is often featured at this fantastic and unexpected contemporary art space in Comfort, Texas - which is quickly becoming "the new Marfa"! He frequently leads classes such as oil painting, watercolor, collage, and color theory. Even when he's not showing his work, a trip to Comfort is one of our favorite hill county day trips with lots of places to grab a bite, sample wines, have a coffee, look at art, and shop for antiques.
