Welcome Community

Situated along the Colorado River, Ballinger is home to over 4,000 friendly people.  With beautifully restored historical homes and buildings, antique stores, active civic organizations, thriving downtown district, industrial plants and with an average daily temperature of 78 degrees, Ballinger proudly serves as the county seat to surrounding Agri-Plex and Runnels County.


The residents of Ballinger take pride in the beautiful, well-kept 20 acre, tree shaded City Park that is located along historical Elm Creek. The park features an extra large public swimming pool, outstanding playground equipment, picnic area with outdoor cooking facilities, hiking and bike trails and R.V. hookups. Ballinger has two "City Lakes" with recreational areas, R.V. hookups, and some of the best fishing in Texas.

We invite you to stop by and visit and see why so many are so proud to call Ballinger home.
