Overview

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.

Eureka Springs Gardens are part of Blue Spring Heritage Center. Beautiful grounds; a lot of history. Not pet friendly.

We've been here in September when the spring is full and the garden is very lush and we've been here in March when the spring is very low and the flora is pretty sparse. While I absolutely love the more lush gardens and the beautiful,...More

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...More

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...More

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...More

You must take the time to ponder on the marvel of the clean, blue water that is so magical. Also, think about The Trail of Tears where Cherokees were forced from their homelands and driven to Oklahoma: another crime of the U.S. Government!

Basically you walk down 130ish steps to see blue mossy water, then to the other side to see the damn and an area that is a bluff\shelter. You get eat up by mosquitoes then you give up and walk back up a mile of ramps...More
