Owner description: Blue Spring is a natural wonder, pouring 38 million gallons of cold, clear water each day into its trout-stocked lagoon.Start your adventure with an insightful historic film in the Visitor Center, then stroll the handicapped-accessible walkways and inviting garden paths that wind through the 33 acres of native gardens. Visit the historic mill site that dates from the 1840's, see the Bluff Shelter on the National Register of Historic Places, and walk along the path of the Trail of Tears. Resident Appaloosas and abundant native flora and fauna delight visitors, and our charming gift shop offers an array of items to keep the exerience alive. Blue Spring is a quiet getaway and a perfect place for weddings, group outings or any special occasion.

Everything was dead except for the ferns and I can go to a nursery and see ferns for free. It was a total waste of money and not impressive at all. Of all the things we did in Eureka Springs, this attraction was the most disappointing.

Blue Spring was very pretty and the small museum on the property was very interesting. However, the walking tour had a lot of steep grades and stairs and was tough for me. This is a very pretty attraction to visit, just take plenty of water! They had a flood a few months back so admission is discounted currently because part of the walkway is closed and the flowers they planted were washed away.

My wife and I went here on our anniversary vacation to Eureka Springs. We were looking for some nice scenery and a nice walk through the woods. This place was it! It was very serene and calming. The gardens were awesome and the springs/lagoon were very pretty. It has some cool history and it was nestled off in the mountains. The drive over from Eureka Springs was very scenic! The front desk/gift shop clerk was very knowledgeable and friendly. The grounds were clean and well kept. Definitely go here if you looking for the outdoors, natures and a little history mixed in.

This area is very pretty with a lot of trees and flowers and such. I was a little disapointed wtih the "spring". It was pretty water, but that was a bout it.

This is now named the Blue Spring Heritage Center is is located West of Eureka Springs. Website is bluespringheritage.com

This area is a beautiful outdoor gardens area with the huge, deep blue spring. A natural spring which dumps several thousand gallons of cold, clear water into a pool that eventually flows to a stream. There are cliff areas and a portion of the Trail of Tears is marked here. It's a great trip for the family.
