A long walk including some rough pathways and not at all worth the $9.50 admission charge. There is plenty of gorgeous scenery around Eureka Springs to see at no charge.

When visiting Blue Spring Heritage Center, we have outdoor gardens and the largest spring in NW Arkansas. It's a walk through facility with gorgeous views and scenery... perfect setting for a leisurely walk. Bring a sack lunch and sit and enjoy the views and birds. We are privately owned and operated and receive no funding from Federal or State agencies... More

Wow the history and beauty here are amazing. Such a fun walk! We loved the film and learning about Blue Spring! I do recommend enjoying this place and visiting the gift shop. It's also a venue for weddings I learned while there. The grounds did not appear to be readily accessible for the handicapped unless there's a motorized wheelchair that... More

My uncle specifically decided to visit the spring when he read, in the promotional brochure, that the attraction was handicap accessible. It is not. While we were inquired about purchasing tickets it was obvious that my uncle was NOT going to be able to visit the grounds. We were encouraged to purchase tickets due to the video and the "museum".... More

It's unfortunate you weren't able to enjoy the property. All guests that arrived after 2:45 pm that day were informed of the event. You happened to arrive the same time as the caterers and we had a lot of work to do to get it ready. Weddings are a big part of our business and I apologize you weren't able... More

Blue Spring Heritage Center was quite a pleasant surprise during my first visit to Eureka Springs. Beautiful walking trails full of plants, trees, birds and water. This is a definite "must visit" if you find yourself in Eureka Springs.

This made for a nice place to kill some time in a quiet and relaxing setting before we had massage appointments that afternoon. It is located down a secluded road a few miles outside of town though, so its not someplace you would just stumble across accidentally. There is a twenty minute video at the visitors center telling about the... More

We really enjoyed our walk around the spring, it was very pretty and peaceful. $9.75 per person seemed a little steep but that was the only drawback. It is definitely worth visiting.

This is a self guided tour and takes anywhere from 1-2 hours. Beautiful spring and the walk around it is peaceful and relaxing. A nice break from the hussle and bussle of town.

We went on a VERY hot day, which is probably why I did not rate this a 4, but if you're looking for a beautiful place to take a walk or a jog, this would be ideal. The rock formations are very cool as are the blue pools. There are unique flowers planted along the walkways too. I wouldn't call... More
