About
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. The City of Wimberley has since developed the 126-acre park for the enjoyment of residents, visitors, and future generations. It includes much needed recreational facilities for our growing community and showcases a true gem in the Texas Hill Country. The park includes approximately 4.5 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. The park balances the needs of the community while preserving and restoring the historic Blue Hole and surrounding ecosystems.

    Great summer cool off spot for the family
    Great place to take a break from triple-digit summer heat! Shaded, cool spring fed swimming hole and clean, well maintained facility. The water entrances are a little rustic though do to the cypress bank profile, but a great old-fashioned swimming hole. Since the city park manages access it is not too crowded and a great place for all ages and families to take a cool swim or swing into one of the deeper holes.

    Glad we went, but don't need to go again.
    This was a fun one-time visit to experience a Texas natural water hole. The area is not very big, so it is a good thing that visitors are limited and reservations are required. The "grassy" area is pretty worn down. We are glad we went, but don't need to go back again. You should do it once. Go early or you may have to walk an extra distance for parking.

    Beautiful area and highly recommend
    Absolutely gorgeous! We got there when it opened at 9am & were the first ones to jump in. It’s such a beautiful area. We didn’t hike but will next time, as our friends and family spent the whole time swimming and jumping off the swings. Highly recommend to bring chairs, water shoes and floaties or tubes. We got there at 9 & left at 1 which was plenty of time! We packed a picnic for lunch and ate there.

    Beautiful park, just a jewel of nature
    Blue Hole Regional Park is located off of Old Kyle Road (the entrance is just after passing a cemetery) a few blocks from Wimberley Square, the town center. Of course, this is the crown jewel of all the Wimberley Parks. Beyond the iconic swimming hole (located at Jacob's well natural area), it includes 3,5 miles of trails, picnic area, a community pavilion, playscape, basketball court, sand volleyball court and an amphitheater. While there is plenty to do outside of the water, the swimming area is the true attraction of the park. Towering cypress trees overhang the banks of the chilly natural spring- fed Cypress Creek to crate the perfect to beat the heat in summer time. Reservations are required to swim. We visited this park at the end of April and the park was quiet and deserted, we could enjoy nature, but soon in May swimming will begin and there will be noise and laughter!! Open daily 8am - 8 pm.

    Clean and deep swimming hole for the summer
    We just went for swimming here. May 19th 2024. we only need reservation if we want to swim. So, I made the reservation couple of weeks early for Sunday afternoon 2-6. They allow only limited tickets, so there is not too much crowd. Parking was full though. we park on the extended parking area and walked to the entrance. We saw huge mosquitos while we walk to the entrance and there were there in the entrance as well. but inside the park, there were none. not even a single mosquito. There are enough space to set your things on the grassy area and good space for you to swim and jump from the rope. it was awesome. the water was a bit cold but once inside the water, its comfortable. the area where the jump is set, is very deep. the water is very clean and clear. we enjoyed very much. we will go again.

They closed for a private event and would not let anyone down. However they failed to advertise this on their website or park signage. Very disappointing to travel there and be denied.

A quiet respite in the month of April...we were the only people walking the trail to the Blue Hole. We we told that come the warmer months, the tourist season can get crazy crowded and reservations are actually required to visit. So just a word to the wise !!!
Is it spectacular...no. Is it relaxing...yes (at least when we were there). Was it enjoyable...yes. Would I recommend it...it's of a medium level interest of a place to visit in my opinion. I would rather be at a hill country winery or at a fun and relaxing hill country restaurant and tavern. But we were in Wimberley, had the time, and took it in.
