The city park, located next to City Hall
, connects the square to the Blanco State Park (entry fees are required for those entering the state park boundary). Contact the City Secretary
about reserving Bindseil Park for your group or event.
The area was once used as the only way to ford the Blanco River in town. Before the bridge on 4th St. was constructed, vehicles would cross a shallow section of the river below the park. Town Creek flows south of the square and crosses through the city park to join two springs before reaching the river.
Using grants and donations, the Wheels & Feet Task Force redeveloped the park to add sidewalks, sloping hills, picnic tables, a garden area, and an amphitheater. Keep Blanco Beautiful maintains the garden and plants at the front of the park and along the east side of the square.
Walk into the park to see an amazing view of the co-champion for largest live oak tree in Blanco County. Local children have played under the tree and climbed its branches as far back as 1917.
