Whether it is a power walk or a stroll, its nice, cool and very appealing. Since I am from Texas originally, always pay attention to your surroundings anywhere because the Texas state snake aka the rattlesnake can be lurking. Did not see one though.

It had better be well maintained, because this is the source for the city's drinking water. There are several parks, walking trails, camping, and a swimming area, on the banks of the river. The reservoir, alone, is worthy of a visit.

Very good tubing most of the way. I enjoyed it the best from my river chair in the water. Ran into very few people. Those we did run into were families. Great fishing too!

Beautiful river and park. There are trails that got all the way out to the lake that you can get to at different locations. Kept very clean and monitored by park patrol and volunteers.

Adorable little park with beautiful mature trees along the San Gabriel River.. San Gabriel park is a quaint, quiet, little spot. Perfect for picnics, feeding the ducks, and just relaxing. Has a great playground and pavilions too, would be great for a family outing with the kids as well!

Tranquil river that runs through historic Georgetown. Clean and clear water. Cement side walk trails make walking fun. Some hills but nothing difficult. Close to El Monumento restaurant. Beautiful wild flowers are seen in spring.

Reluctant to rate this park, as it has the perfect mix of accessibility and beauty. One of the best attributes of Georgetown, as well as being one of the least known.

This is one of the best reasons to live in Georgetown! The park offers walking/bike trails, gardens, baseball fields, the recreation center, community center, disc golf, fishing, great playgrounds, bird watching, people watching, flowing water and more! If the climate would just cooperate and stay between 70 and 80 degrees year round, it would be even better. So, next time... More

Sat on a bench with my friend overlooking the river near the San Gabriel park, wonderful walkway through the quaint town of Georgetown. Well maintained and worth the walk.
