About this Exploration:

This ten-acre park was established in 1949 when Wendelin J. Braun and his wife Loretta donated the land to the City of Victoria with the stipulation that it would always be used as a park. It was named the Honey Braun Park honor of W. J. “Honey” Braun who was the mayor of Victoria from 1971 to 1975. W. J. Braun was very involved in the community and he served two terms on the Ellis County Commission. He was a self-employed businessman involved with cattle, farming and oil interest as well as former owner of the Victoria Hotel, the Blue Goose Café, the Gay Theater and Rose Ball Room.

In 2002, the City of Victoria received a grant for a complete park renovation. The grant money, along with a match from the city, was used to make several improvements to the park, including the addition of a modern new shelter house that is lighted, has three electrical outlets and picnic table facilities that can accommodate 80 to 90 people. The playground equipment has two separate age appropriate play areas, six slides, climbing and agility features, recycled tire mulch under the play areas, connecting sidewalks and is beautifully landscaped. The park also has horseshoe pits and with the natural sloping terrain towards the middle of the park, it creates a scenic amphitheater setting created by Mother Nature. This park is used for the concerts held in August each year during the annual Herzog Fest, which is a celebration of the German heritage community of Herzog.
