Park Review: San Gabriel Park in Georgetown
Time for another park review!
(long over due actually!)
Saturday the kids and I spent the morning in the Georgetown park along the beautiful San Gabriel River. This picturesque area was a joy to visit. It is covered with huge oak trees that provide shade from the Texas heat. There is a small playground with slides and climbing structures, and lots of open green spaces to picnic in or just run around the place.
But the main attraction for us was the ducks. We came loaded with bread crumbs and the kids loved tossing them to the hungry ducks. Logan kept calling "Here go, ducks! Lunch!"
There are several hike and bike trails running through out the series of parks along the San Gabriel River. The longest trail is 5 miles. The shortest is 1 mile.You can find a link with a map to the hike and bike trails here.
Birdy's favorite part of our visit was standing on the bridge that stretches over the San Gabriel and watching the fish and ducks swim by. Bugs favorite part was finding fossils and shells in the rocky bed and dipping his toes in the water to cool them down.
The kids had a lot of fun at this park and they are already asking to go back.
The Sense of Wonder family gives the San Gabriel Park in Georgetown 3 out of 4 stars.
