The north and south branches of the San Gabriel River come together just to the northwest of downtown Georgetown. There is a wonderful cement trail that starts in San Gabriel park and meanders along the bank of this beautiful river. The trail has distance markers so if you are looking for a place to exercise as well as explore, you... More

I live in Georgetown and never visited the park that the San Gabriel Runs through. I did with friends the other day and it was a peaceful and wonderful visit. Recommend to anyone visiting the area.

I love the fact that the river runs through Georgetown and that there are trails for pretty much that entire length. You can walk along the river in San Gabriel Park or Rivery Park or several others, or walk between those parks along the trails.

There is a unique bond between man and a sylvan site accompanied by a flowing river. It beckons us to slow down, take in the scenery, and ultimately realize that the rush-rush madness in our lives is far less conducive to happiness and solace than a scene painted by God.

Pretty much something for anyone here. There is a restaurant overlooking the river, El Monumento Cafe, that is excellent. There are a few places with playgrounds for young ones. Blue hole park is OK for swimming. The trail along the lower river is paved and easy to walk or bike on. Further up river, the trail turns to dirt/rocks and... More

Gtown has some of my favorite parks of any Texas town I been to, and San Gabriel is definitely the main park. Lots of exercise equipment, playscapes, fields for sports, frisbee stuff, etc. The town usually does a real good job of keeping the park clean, safe, and up to date.

San Gabriel River is a great place to go with the family and the dog. When it is hot outside, the cool waters of the San Gabriel are perfect.

The river has some really great places for kids with the beaches and shallow waters. Currents are very mild and there are some natural water slides that the kids will love

The San Gabriel river is a significant part of Texas history, as is Georgetown. The city has complete a wonderful trail (concrete) along the river from Blue Hole east through the entire San Gabriel Park. Excellent strolling for the whole family wheelchairs and dogs included. Plenty of play area in the park. Excellent setting for loading up the wagon and... More
