We took my mom on a walk along the dam. She is on a walker & was able to navigate really well on the smooth surface. Thankfully there was a nice breeze off the water so it wasn't too hot. Decent bathroom too.

My family and I learned about this place while staying in New Braunfels for Labor Day weekend. We were traveling with 3 teenagers and a 7 year old. We absolutely loved this place! The views are amazing! We hiked down to get to the lake...More
