This Texas state park is a jewel. It sits on a hill overlooking the Colorado River and valley and the city of La Grange. Visitors walk along the marked path and take in the stunning view while learning much about Texas history. The park rangers and guides are helpful and knowledgeable. We also enjoyed the old Kreische Brewery ruins located... More

The grounds were well maintained. The plaques in the monument area were very educational on a segment of Texas history. The Kreische house was very interesting from the outside. Would have liked to see the interior but tours were not available on that weekday.

If you can go in the afternoon the tours are your best bet. Very informative and worth the stop. It would be a beautiful place for a picnic. It's free And It's dog friendly!

The park is the perfect size for a 2-hour visit. We took the 2pm Saturday tour to see the brewery and John Rice led us down and into the room where they stored the beer... Delightfully cool inside! Be sure to ask to see the video at the info center. I'll have to return on a day when they offer... More

Nice park and helpful staff. The monument is very pretty and the brewery is pretty neat, although I wish you could get closer. An interesting way to spend an hour or two and the grounds are very peaceful.

Friendly staff at the museum offering advice and insight. Enjoyed reading the historical plaques and reading the names of those who died for their cause, often unjustly. Great view over the Colorado River valley below and a good walking trail system.

The monument to Texans who died during Texas fight for independence from Mexico is very impressive. Their are great views from the bluffs overlooking the town of LaGrange. The old brewery is an amazing example of German immigrant stonework. The trail to the upper view of the brwery is fairly easy, but to go down to the brewery can be... More
