History

CCC men building a rock arch.Comanches frequented what is now the park, camping in the groves of native pecan trees, like you see in our picnic area.

The state acquired the property in 1933 from the city of Abilene. The park, with 529.4 acres, is southwest of Abilene, in Taylor County.

The Civilian Conservation Corps built the park’s facilities in the early 1930s. Abilene State Park opened on May 10, 1934.
