Garey Park opened to the public Saturday with a grand opening event that included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and pony rides.
The 525-acre park will offer several amenities, including an equestrian area and 6 miles of equestrian trails, a playground, a splash pad, a dog park, rentable pavilions and 3 miles of hiking trails.
The park will be free to the public for the first two weeks. Following the initial two-week period, Georgetown residents will pay $5 per car for up to two people to enter Garey Park and $2 for each additional person in groups of more than two. Nonresident entrance fees will follow the same system but with a charge of $10 per car for up to two people. Equestrian rider entry will be $8 for residents and $12 for nonresidents.
