Dick Kleberg Park

The Kingsville - Kleberg County Parks Department currently operates and maintains three major park areas, and eight smaller neighborhood parks.

On April 25, 1958, Robert J. Kleberg, Jr. and Richard M. Kleberg Jr., trustees of the Alice G.K. Kleberg Foundation donated 184.5 acres of land to Kleberg County. The park was named after Dick Kleberg Sr., a congressman and Chairman of the Board of King Ranch from 1950-1955.

The Dick Kleberg Park is the main park within our park system. The park hosts a wide variety of activities and facilities for all ages of recreation enthusiasts. The park is home to two baseball fields, 3 little league baseball fields, 2 softball fields in addition to one -three field multi purpose softball complex and one - three field adult softball complex and we have hosted the Girls PONY regionals and state semi final tournaments in these fields. In addition to top rated fields the park enjoys Escondido Creek running through the south side and it lays a beautiful landscape for our walking/ jogging trail, a fishing pier, and is home to some of the best birding in South Texas. Other facilities include a swimming pool, sand volleyball court, basketball court, tennis courts, soccer fields, outdoor lighted rodeo arena, several playground areas, many picnic facilities, a recreation building, a bar-b-que hut and the J.K. Northway Exposition Center.

Activities during the year at Dick Kleberg Park include Little League baseball, Girls Softball, Youth Soccer, Adult Softball leagues, aquatic instruction classes and lap swimming, and many other special events promoted by various non-profit groups from the community.
