Wimberley - Blue Hole Regional Park

100 Blue Hole Lane

In 2005, the City of Wimberley embarked on a mission to save the Blue Hole from the threat of residential development. After an unprecedented fundraising effort, the land was purchased by the City for use as a community park. Now, the City is embarking on an effort to design the newly acquired 126-acre park for the enjoyment of residents, visitors, and future generations. It will include much needed recreational facilities for the growing community. The park will balance the needs of the community while preserving and restoring the historic Blue Hole and surrounding ecosystems. The City hired Design Workshop to design the park that was originally envisioned in a master plan led by the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in 2006.

The park is open every day from 8 a.m. until dusk, excluding Christmas Day and special weather-related closures.  The park includes approximately 3.5 miles of trails, picnic areas, a community pavilion, playscape, basketball court, sand volleyball court, amphitheater, and the Blue Hole Swimming Area. The entire park is open to visitors within the regular operating hours, however swimming is only allowed during the designated swimming season.

It's changed a lot since my childhood. You used to be able to just walk up, was in the middle of nowhere. Now there's a ticket booth and it's paved with permanent paths. I understand why they did it however. People were trashing it and it needed preservation. It's still a beautiful place.

Great place... absolutely gorgeous but gets very busy in summer and weekends. This year during high season you must make reservations.

Just an amazing place. You will want to get there early since they will only sell 250 wristbands per day to swim. You don't have to buy one if you just want to explore the trails. Adults were $9 and kids 2-12 are $5 each to swim. Its almost like a tropical oasis in the desert. The swimming hole is about the length of 2 football fields and has a couple of rope swings. On both banks there are towering Knob Cypress keeping it cool even on a hot day. The water is a constant 67f so it may seem a bit cold at first bit is so refreshing. One side is pretty deep and one is shallow enough to easily walk in. The best part is the crystal clear water. Bring a mask if you can and you will be able to see father than any other swimming hole in TX. Its a magical place and my family loved it.

Freezing!!! But relaxing, fun, and very beautiful!!! We loved floating around the watering hole. And the teenager enjoyed the rope swings. And we thought ahead, to pack a picnic. So it made for a great summer outing!

Small swimming area that is pretty but small has been over crowded in the past and now more restrictive.
