“Great Park In Small Town”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

This is a great park in a small town. The golf course is an a pecan grove setting and is fun to play although for a good golfer this may not be a challenging course for you. The kids can run wild with all the outside nature around, including a river. There are recreational facilities on both sides of the road and just a short distance away are venues for outside viewing primarily in the summer months. This would include festivals held on those grounds.

“An impressive park...”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

...in a town that, quite frankly, doesn't have all that much going for it. The park is stretched out along the Guadalupe River, and the little falls going over the dam are one of the sights of Seguin. There is a nice golf course, some really good play areas for the kids (though you might want to check underneath some of the equipment for used condoms or needles...sorry), a large pavilion for large parties, several fishing sites and a big wave pool that is opened in the summer. Picnic areas are scattered along the river. Some parts of the park might be closed, depending on the state of repairs to damages caused by the last flood. It's really a nice park, and has received favorable remarks in several travel publications. No camping, but there are camping areas close by.

“A beautiful piece of Seguin.”
Reviewed July 11, 2011

There is a lot to do at Max Starke Park; picnic, hike, basketball, catch a baseball game, wave pool, chili cook off's, playgrounds, etc. Its a beautiful spot, and is working on becoming so much more! Be advised that summer months are really hot!

“Lush river running through old growth pecan forest”
Reviewed September 19, 2008

I grew up in Seguin with lots of time spent at Max Starcke Park. Once a month our family would put together a picnic and get to the park early to find our favorite table. The old pecan trees provide a shady canopy for the blankets we spread. The river flows just a few feet away, deep green, alive with fish, turtles, frogs and everything wild. The air is filled with humid smells of the trees, water and our picnic food, usually fried chicken. I visited my hometown this year during the roadtrip and stopped at the park first thing into town. It is still as beautiful and full of life as ever. It is a treasure.
