“Golf Course”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Good golf course to play. Club house cashiers not very friendly. Nice and green for most of the season. Clubhouse can use more variety of equipment for purchases.

“The Most Beautiful Waterfall in Texas”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great for windshield tourism. A graceful, curving waterfall spills over a low dam, the highlight of a scenic park drive meandering more than a mile alongside the jade-green waters of the Guadalupe River, beneath towering cypress and pecans.

The beautiful man-made waterfall is the legacy of the park's designer, Robert H.H. Hugman, better-known for the River Walk in San Antonio. Hugman was also the architect of the Art Deco Recreation Building, now used for offices. A pioneering landscape architect, he left plantings of his trademark mix of tropical and desert plants, including palms, burro bananas, cactus, and flowering shrubs.

Alas, Hugman's plantings were washed away by floods over the years, and not replanted. The City Waterworks, which blocked views of the beautiful waterfall, was *almost* washed away several times. But it was always rebuilt in exactly the same place. So it continues to block the best views.

“Beautiful park”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Towering oaks shade green areas. Great place for a picnic by the river. Nice and big, so you won't be too close to other people.
