Pedernales Falls State Park

The Springs: Located near the west end of Mercer Street, the original "dripping springs" are delineated by a granite marker donated by the D.S. Noon Lions' club. The springs were a gathering place for the Indians, as well as the source of water for the original settlers in the area.

Milton Reimers Ranch Park: This pristine parkland, open space and reserve land with almost 3 miles of continuous frontage along the Pedernales River is the largest parkland acquisition in the history of Travis County and is a popular destination for mountain bikers, rock climbers and fishermen.

Founders Park boasts the community swimming pool and sports fields, as well as play and picnic areas. Recent cooperation between the school district, city, and the Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept. has produced an outstanding sports complex with baseball, softball, and soccer fields, as well as a playscape for young children and additional facilities for families.
