We recently discovered this post from 2014 and decided we just had to share it again. Berry Springs Park is a gem of Georgetown! Though the park is currently open, there may be a few difference this summer due to Covid-19. Please confirm details with Williamson County Parks and Rec if there’s something specific you’re counting on doing at the park.
When Berry Springs Park and Preserve was voted “The Best Kept Secret” in the 2010 “The Best of Georgetown” contest, I was intrigued. It had indeed been kept a secret from me. I had no idea there was a park up north with a historic compound, a nature trail, a fishing pond, a boardwalk, gardens, and donkeys.
My boys enjoyed a game of tag on the shady playground and then we wandered over to check out the Born Learning Trail. A sign welcomed us to the interactive trail: “Do you know that learning is happening all the time? For ways to learn together just look for the Born Learning Trail signs. By playing and exploring you help young children get ready for success in school and in life. Together, you can turn everyday moments into learning moments. Happy Trails!”
With butterfly nets in hand, we started down the trail but quickly got distracted looking for grasshoppers, dragonflies, and moths. There were several picnic tables by the water, so we had a bite to eat and relaxed in the sunshine, taking photo after photo of insects posing on our fingers.
