CCC work at the park included building the park roads, culverts, and other park infrastructure. the caretaker’s dwelling, garage, a storage facility with water storage tank and entrance portals.

The park was originally called Kerrville State Park. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Commissioners changed the name to Kerrville-Schreiner State Park in 1990. On February 13, 2004, the park transferred back to the City of Kerrville under authority of Texas House Bill 2108.
