Blue Spring is a natural wonder, pouring 38 million gallons of cold, clear water each day into its trout-stocked lagoon.Start your adventure with an insightful historic film in the Visitor Center, then stroll the handicapped-accessible walkways and inviting garden paths that wind through the 33 acres of native gardens. Visit the historic mill site that dates from the 1840's, see the Bluff Shelter on the National Register of Historic Places, and walk along the path of the Trail of Tears. Resident Appaloosas and abundant native flora and fauna delight visitors, and our charming gift shop offers an array of items to keep the exerience alive. Blue Spring is a quiet getaway and a perfect place for weddings, group outings or any special occasion.

We loved this garden. While it is small, it is stunning. Self guided tours, with an occasional event. Perfect for weddings.

This place is actually called "Blue Spring Heritage Center". It is a nice place to stop and spend a couple of hours. Beautiful spring and fun feeding the trout. The gardens a very well maintained. Not ot bad admission price of 9.75 per person.

The lady in the office/store mentioned there was a walkway under water. We paid $20 to get in (me and my husband) and then were very upset to see that the ENTIRE spring was under water. She was rude and refused to give us our money back. Blaming it on weather - which I understand but really???? She could have... More

This is a nice little place with some interesting cultural, historical details. The trail is easy for all ages though steps would make it impossible for wheelchair bound. There are many beautiful, unique flowers and plants along with the natural spring. You can even dip your toes in the spring if you're brave! Be aware this is called the Blue... More

This little area in downtown is awesome, the scenery, the entertainment, ( A Travis Tritt) sound alike, and the people were the friendliest people I have ever meet. Could sit there for hours so calming

We drove from Branson south on the 62 and found the charming area of Eureka Springs AR, tucked in the Ozark Mountains it is a gem! The gardens, lookout over the mountains, the shops and the friendly people made the trip worth taking. We stopped along the way for a beverage at the Roudy Beaver, and had the best ribs... More
