Established in 1937, this courthouse replaced the original one that was burnt down in 1874. The architecture of the Burnet County Courthouse was influenced by Moderne style and was designed by Milton Wirtz. It features a block-like structure, with a beautiful garden surrounding it. Housing two floors, the courthouse has a mauve-shaded facade. The pink granite used in its construction, is the same as the one used for the Texas State Capitol.
Bar K Park is a small green space located at Lago Vista. A local park, it mostly sees visitors coming in to take a walk or play sports. With nicely marked trails, one can also go jogging, or simply sit under the trees and have a small family picnic. The park proves to be a great choice to relax or play outdoors.
Over 500 animals that include over 80 different species are located at this 137 acre, wooded park that offers professional, daily, guided Safari tours where you can learn interesting facts about the animals habits and backgrounds. Four cabins are also on site for overnight accommodations.
As part of the Pedernales River and Hamilton Creek, this old-fashioned swimming hole is perfect for the nature lover in all of us. A shaded walk through the canyon opens to the limestone outcroppings that create a 50-foot waterfall landing in the pool. A picnic on the banks of the pool, a swim in the cool water or a quick hike through the canyon will wash away city-accumulated stress. The trail to the pool is fairly short (1/4 of a mile) but does include a series of rock steps. Good hiking shoes are recommended. Visitors with physical disabilities should call ahead to pre-arrange assistance. Parking is limited, and the pool is very popular so go early and stay late.
Camping, picnicking, hiking, river swimming, tubing, wading, mountain biking, fishing, bird watching, and horseback riding are just some of the activities visitors of Pedernales Falls State Park enjoy. The 5,212-acre Pedernales Falls State Park is located along the banks of the Pedernales River.
