A new boardwalk is part of the updated Packery Channel County Park near Corpus Christi.
Workers resurfaced the access road into the park and added two launching spots for kayaks. Hummingbird and butterfly gardens are also part of the layout unveiled Saturday.
Director Scott Cross says the 38-acre park also has new concrete benches and an observation deck.
The park borders Packery Channel, which separates Mustang Island from Padre Island.
