Attraction details
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.

“Natural beauty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

What a treat to spend time on a lovely spring afternoon walking the trails, sipping the spring water, learning the history of the spring and wowing over the 10,000 petunias. It would be a lovely walk in any season. The area abounds in history.

The gardens are full of life, flowers, birds, and butterflies. It is great to walk along the paths and enjoy the gardens and springs that you find.

“Unbelievable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Have never seen such pretty gardens anywhere! They have obviously been laid out with great care, thought, skill and attention to every detail. The master gardener/designer deserves kudos all the way around. A feast for the eyes and food for the soul!

“Fall time visit--beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

There are cute shops and restaurants that string along the main road in Eureka Springs. The foliage is changing in late October-early November, and the different colors are just amazing. Take a weekend to relax and take things slow.
