Love the Gardens!
Jun. 2021
We come to blue Spring Heritage Center every year. The Gardens are stunning, there are so many spots to sit and just take in the views. The rock cliffs are amazing, and if you need exercise, you will get it! Very beautiful, serene and we will go again next year!

Absolutely Beautiful Turquoise Water!!!
Jun. 2021 • Couples
What an absolutely gorgeous place! The water is literally turquoise color! You’ve just got to see it! Landscaping is gorgeous! There is a considerable amount of walking uphill and downhill, so I would probably go between October -May to avoid the heat. It is an outdoor wild area, so you do need to be aware of snakes and other potentially hazardous wildlife.

So peaceful!

Such a cute drive to get there! Was a few other families there but it was still so very peaceful and didn't have to rush through. Stop and smell the roses(:

Blue Springs Heritage should be on your to do list
May 2021 • Couples
Easy walk. Enjoyed looking @ nature. Plenty of benches to sit & take a rest. The blue springs were beautiful. Everything was well labeled. Short video was great.

Worth a visit
May 2021 • Family
This is a very nice quite location. The spring water is Clear and blue and the whole area is well kept and it’s a nice place to visit. It was raining when we visited and there were no other visitors. The whole are is pretty large and some walking is involved.

Free for Locals
May 2021 • Friends
So my parents had not been to this spring since it changed from the Eureka Springs Gardens to the Blue Spring Heritage Center. We discovered at the gift shop that only I would have to pay as my parents are locals. The lady in the gift shop was great at giving us directions and telling us what to do where. The Spring is so very blue and the water is very chilly. The native flowers were beautiful and almost all in bloom. My favorite part was all the information signs that told you all about different aspects of the gardens. I was sad that there was no trout food but really liked this place and would highly recommend.

The Best
May 2021 • Couples
This was my favorite for sure. There are so many beautiful things to see in Eureka, Blue Springs was the best. The flowers were beautiful, the rocks were big and beautiful and the water was breathtaking. The staff in the visitor center was so helpful. I’d go back tomorrow

Pretty but pricey
Apr. 2021
This is a very pretty place. However, it is not really for the motility challenged. It was fun being able to put your feet in the water, but WOW is it ever COLD! I had the feeling it was overpriced for the experience though. It is a lot to pay just to see a spring.

Simply beautiful
Apr. 2021
I went here not expecting much, but the grounds are beautiful and lots of informational signage to help visitors truly appreciate the history and beauty of the land.

Beautiful spot
Mar. 2021 • Solo
This is a beautiful little spot! We had driven past many times for many years and today decided to enjoy the beautiful weather with a walk. There is an admission fee but there is a lot of upkeep needed and gardening! Lovely day for a leisurely walk. The history of the place is quite interesting. It’s not a large place but it does have some stairs or ‘accessible’ ramp. I feel like you would still need some mobility or a chair that can handle gravel slopes and some rough boardwalk.
