What travelers are saying
- The kids were NOT the only ones having a lot of fun here. Everyone had a blast. It was like re-living childhood pleasures, and we were smart enough to use lots of sun screen. No sunburns after HOURS of playing.Written September 10, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A nice set up of a part of the railroad history. It was quite instructive and a must for train lovers. It was a pity that we could not go inside the wagons.Written May 10, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is a great way to spend your day away from the city! Great wine, relaxing environment, and great service. If you are in central Texas this place is amazing. Family culture friendly staff and much more.Written July 16, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Quaint museum, organized setup so items are easy to read and peruse. Staff was very friendly and happy to talk to us about our personal heritage and made recommendations about the town. Make sure to enjoy the video presentation, well worth it.Written August 17, 2021
- There are hiking trails and plenty of trees which gives me the peace of mind that one can only find in nature. I used to run cross-country here. It's an excellent park to get in shape at. I highly recommend Miller Springs Park.Written October 27, 2020
- John and Melissa offer a variety of fruit wines to satisfy most anyone's palate. Their 40 acre rural facility is only a few miles off the beaten path on the east side of Temple and is rapidly growing to fill their hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Both of them are warm, engaging, and enthusiastic to share their knowledge of wines and wine making, and the wines they make, offered in a souvenir glass given to each visitor. They source ingredients from numerous states around America offering bold fruit wines that can be found nowhere else. My favorite wine was their Black Currant. At this time, the winery is open only one, three day weekend per month. The winery is already an excellent venue for just a couple exploring the Temple area or for accommodating small groups. The winery offers both indoor and outdoor seating where the country setting with an array of animals can be appreciated from picnic tables, or even a small deck. Be sure to say hello to Ready Eddy, the stud goat. Plans for the future include a storefront at the entrance to the property.Written January 23, 2021
- West Temple Park is a great place for kids to run around. There is a splash pad which makes Texas summers more bearable. We used the park for a large family get together. There are some pavilions you can reserve through the city parks dept. There are plenty of grassy areas, which our family used to play games like tug-of-war and trying to run with the egg on the spoon (to give you an idea of how much space there is). I have been bringing my children here since they were small and they’ve always enjoyed it.Written September 10, 2019
- It isn't really terrible but it isn't always available. I did place a call to see if we would be able to view the house, left a message and my call was never returned.Written November 9, 2019
- We brought the youngsters here to blow off some steam and we were exceptionally pleased by the condition and choice of equipment for them. I felt comfortable letting the kids have fun!Written November 15, 2019
- Good thing Dillard’s is there. Not much else to keep you going back. I was visiting from out of town and used the mall for walking on a rainy day. The mall itself was pretty empty and not even many people at the few restaurants. Needs to be updated and new life brought in.Written March 9, 2020
- I've spent many an afternoon walking this trail from one end to the next. Friar's creek is the most beautiful place on the trail, with its well kept woods that almost does not belong in Temple. It has a dreamy, tropical feel to it, with a hint of adventure suggested by the picture of creatures that could be found there. I've passed many people on the way, so it's being used. I woukd hughly recommend. The downside is that it's a short trail, and you can barely break a sweet.Written September 22, 2017
- a nice view of the river from the picnic area which was very shady and comfortable on a 95+ degree summer day. The river is fishable from this location.Written June 14, 2018
- We travelled here from Dallas to see the temple but unfortunately when we got there, we felt rather underwhelmed by it. We have travelled to many places in the world and visited numerous temples but this was a real let down.Written February 20, 2020
- BJ’s is my favorite restaurant to eat in Temple! It’s easy to get seated, watch your favorite sporting event on TV, and the food is great with service that is fast and accommodating. Plus, the menu selections are perfect from appetizers to entrees to deserts. I’m not big on beverages, but they’ve got that mastered as well!Written February 11, 2020
- My husband and I went to Leona Park on a Wednesday afternoon in mid-November. The park is located just off Hwy 36 at Lake Belton (about a mile north of Hwy 317). There is a nice 2 lane boat ramp, a fishing dock, large parking lot and fault restrooms on the west side of Hwy 36. If you want to picnic, bring your own chairs, tables, etc. The park is maintained well. On the map, it shows a large portion of the park on the east side of Hwy 36 as well. The east side has a road through it but no parking and nothing else. The park is open 24 hours a day and it is free.Written November 18, 2020
