We found this really beautiful drone video on YouTube and thought you might like to enjoy our Georgetown summer beauty! It’s filmed with a DJI Phantom 3 Pro.
All but the newest residents around Georgetown know about the Blue Hole. It’s right in the heart of town, just 5 blocks north of the Georgetown Square and to the east of IH 35. The entrance to Blue Hole Park is at W. Second Street and Rock Street. As one of the gems of this area it offers both beauty and easy access for swimming, picnicking and fun in the sun!
Bring the little ones, there are places to wade, ducks to feed and lots of space to run and play.
It is said that the water in the Blue Hole is slightly warmer than some other swimming holes around the Austin area because it is part of the San Gabriel River.
The main area is around 40 yards across and the entire length is a good walk around the bend, where there is more access to the water.
There’s a beautiful wooded area nearby and up the rocky hill. There you’ll find picnic tables and lots of shade. Also there are bathroom facilities conveniently close by.
There’s a sign asking visitors to stay off the cliffs on the north shore. And the word is that the police will issue tickets to those not heeding the warning.
Entrance to the park is free and it’s open from dusk to dawn. Park Rules include no glass bottles, fires in designated grills or fire pits only, no sleeping overnight, no hunting or bow fishing, no activities which are a public nuisance, no metal detectors and all pets must be on leashes.
If you need more information you can call Parks and Recreation at 512-930-3595.
