Explore Sun City Texas: Berry Springs Park and Preserve

Berry Springs Park & Reserve is an extensive park located in Williamson County just outside of Georgetown. The park is primarily on farmland with several pecan and oak trees as well as Berry Springs, a small fishing lake. It's bordered by Berry Creek and Dry Berry Creek.

This little gem of Georgetown also sits just outside of Sun City Texas. I say it's a little gem because it was voted the "Best Kept Secret" in the Best of Georgetown contest in 2010. This gorgeous historic compound features nature trails, boardwalk, gardens, animals, and a fishing pond. Yet it's much more than that, without seeing it in person, it's really hard to emphasize the extensive beauty of this beautiful hidden gem.

Located at 1801 CR 152 in Georgetown, this beautiful preserve offers passive recreational uses as well as camping, hiking, and fishing. It offers a 2.5 mile hiking and biking trail that connects to many Georgetown parks and recreational trails. It's open from 7:00 AM until 10:00 PM and is completely free.

Other amenities include barbecue grills, picnic tables, rentable pavilions, playgrounds, restrooms, wildlife viewing areas, camping, biking, and much more. If you're looking to get lost in the woods, Berry Springs Park is a great location. There are both primitive and improved campsites available and is popular with hikers, bikers, and even horseback riders with its miles of trails, trees, and prairie areas. It has a great combination of all of the above as well as an extensive forest perfect for riparian habitats.

Grab a picnic lunch or stop by Wrigley's Pub and grab lunch and head to the park for a great day relaxing in the sunshine, exploring the grounds, or getting in your 10,000 steps for the day. It's also a great place to take grandkids letting them run wild, explored the Born Learning Trail, and burn off some of that energy on the playground.

Speaking of grandkids, it's a perfect place to grab a butterfly net and head down the trail looking for grasshoppers, dragonflies, and butterflies. There are several picnic tables along the water so it's a perfect place to stop, have a snack, and enjoy the wildlife. There are several bird viewing areas and a beautiful wildflower meadow with maps all along the way so you really don't get lost.
