Quality of life is rich in Selma! First, the City of Selma has several parks: Stage Stop Park, FM 1518 Park, and Davenport Park. The Stage Stop Park was established in part, from a grant from TXDOT that was used to restore the historic Stage Stop. Created was a visitor’s center and park amenities for Selma citizens.
Shopping is abundant in Selma with the Forum Shopping Center being in the city’s backyard. Some of the anchor businesses in the Forum Shopping Center are Toys R Us, Starbucks, Hobby Lobby, Old Navy, TJ Maxx, and Macaroni Grill. Major development along IH 35 near the Forum Shopping Center continues to surge.
Selma is also home to Retama Park, a beautiful horse-racing facility that opened in 1995. The facility provides racing for both turf and dirt running horses, catering to both quarter horse and thoroughbred racing fans and simulcasting of races from other major race tracks throughout the country.
Lastly, Selma is community driven, committed to engaging with its citizens. Every third Saturday in May, Selma hosts its annual Police & Fire Fundraiser, with an auction, BBQ plate sale, and attractions for the kiddos. All proceeds from the event are donated to the 100 Clubs of Comal & Guadalupe Counties. Selma residents also benefit from other city events like Movie-in-the-Park Night, Halloween & Christmas for the kiddos at the Fire Station, and National Night Out.
