Palacios Development


Palacios is set to become a favorite weekend destination for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers. Its proximity to Austin and Houston offer opportunities for consistent growth in this sector.

Pavilion Project

A new Pavilion was built on the waterfront in 2018 as part of the waterfront development plans. The octagonal structure is reminiscent of the historic pavilions that have been a part of Palacios waterfront since 1904.

The new facility is available for public use for educational presentations, community gatherings, events, private functions, school tours and other programs. The project is one step in developing the waterfront of Palacios.

For information on holding conferences or events at the pavilion, contact the City of Palacios.
