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.

Definitely worthy of a visit for the sheer natural beauty of the landscape here! Be sure to check on the status of the terrain if there has been lots of rainy weather as it can definitely be a concern! Plan a repeat visit in warmer weather!

We drove to the gardens not realizing what exactly it was. We went into the gift shop and got more info but we decided not to go in due to the heat and having to walk a bunch. Might be pretty and worth the trip in the spring or fall. There were only about 3 cars in the parking lot.

Long drive from Eureka Springs. Have to pay to walk from parking to the Springs. When the river is high it hides the blue hole.

Went to the gardens after it had been flooded. Was still able to walk around and enjoy the scenery and color of the water. There is a wheelchair path from the visitors center down to the pool. A 150 foot (roughly) section of the path is dirt and rock which might present a challenge to someone in a wheelchair, but the rest of the way down is wood planks. The path at the bottom is gravel or boardwalk.

I have been here a couple of times. The first was in the fall and not many flowers were blooming. The next time was in the spring and it had an abundance of flowers of different varieties. They also opened up another trail that led you through a wooded section by the bluffs. The whole park and especially the spring is beautiful.
