Texas is a state that offers natural beauty visitors never forget, and even though Garner State Park is located about two hours from your I Love Dripping Springs sanctuary, we think you will find it worth the longer road trip! Located at 234 RR 1050 in Concan and offering more water adventures, every minute of your day of play will be the best minutes of your stay! This guide to Garner and all its charms will entice you to add it to your itinerary.
So Much to Do in Garner State Park
While everything about Garner Park is wonderful, it is the Frio River flowing through it that attracts the most attention. Perfect for fishing, swimming, or simply floating down the river on an innertube, thrill seekers will find their thrills and peace lovers will discover their much needed peace! Hike the trails that traverse the park, taking plenty of pictures to help you remember the quiet beauty and all the fun you had on these hikes through paradise. This park is more than a two trick pony, however, offering biking trails and geocaching adventures, paddle boats, canoe trips, and 18 holes of mini golf, a sport that is always guaranteed to show participants a good time, no matter how high their scores are! Stinkin’ Sweet Mini Golf is inexpensive too, costing just $5 per person for one round and an additional $2 per person should you decide you haven’t had enough fun on the greens yet. There are smaller clubs available for those 3 and under, and the Candy Shop attached to the mini golf course ensures that everyone’s dispositions will be even sweeter!
This idyllic slice of land opened for “business” in 1941, and not long after the Summer Dance began. Memorial Day weekend isn’t just the kickoff for summer; it is the kickoff for Summer Dance at Garner Park. Held every night of the week from June 1st until the middle of August, your favorite songs will have you kicking up your heels on the Pavilion Dance Floor, making you happy that the jukebox, unlike live bands, never has to take a break! The fun starts at 8:30 and ends at 11, so arrive early to ensure you don’t miss out on a single moment of the music!
