LOCATION: San Gabriel Park 1003 North Austin Avenue, Georgetown, TX (I-35 and Williams Drive)
DISTANCE: 3.15 Miles
HOW PRETTY? Very scenic. Often there are swans, turtles and other animals enjoying the river. Lots of retired, friendly walkers as well. Must be a 55 and older community nearby.
TYPE OF PATH: Dirt Trail & Paved Path
DOG FRIENDLY? For running: For playgrounding/splashing/swimming:
PLAYSCAPE FEATURES: Multiple playscapes Teepees Rock Wall Musical chimes Tall & fast slides A faux bank/city appeal Telescopes Benches with a canopy for hot Moms (you know who you are) Ramps Monkey bars Tunnels Swings Drinking fountains
PLAYSCAPE SURFACE: Mulch and some grass in the enclosed space.
BATHROOMS (BECAUSE POTTY TRAINING HAPPENS): Super close to the playground, but a bit 'rustic,' if you will.
PARKING: Parking can be a bit of a problem since many of the spots are reserved for the community center.
EXTRAS: There is a portion of the playground that has an obstructed view of those under 3 feet, so if you're a helicopter Mom with a tiny tot, you may not feel comfortable. Not a whole lot of shade on the toddler playscape so the equipment can get a bit warm. Nearby baseball field(s)
BEGIN AT CREATIVE PLAY, HEADING NORTHEAST ON THE TRAIL. CONTINUE ALONG THE WATER UNTIL YOU REACH THE I-35 UNDERPASS AND LOOP BACK, MAKING A LEFT AT THE FORK IN THE DIRT TRAIL. 3.15 MILES
