This is a small park with a limited amount of trails. It is very close to downtown Blanco. However, there isn’t very much to do there. The river running through the park is nice but due to dams, the paddle is short.

The park has a great hiking trail that could use a little clean up. The brush is so thick along the path it was hard to jog through.
