  • Beautiful, well-curated place with about 2 miles of gardens, jungle trails, river walk, museums, shelters and play area for kids. Good spot for a half day picnic for entire family fun. Entry fee for a full day parking for a car is just $5, and no additional admission cost. If you want, you can park car outside as well & walk. River-side walk, or if you feel like then, walk inside the river can be a great experience.
  • On this journey to Maramec Springs, our main goal was to feed the fish. And the kids were extremely satisfied. They have fish food feeders at the park so bring some quarters. They are a few around the walkway. The fish are very abundant. The water is beautiful and the current is rapid. They do have a museum you can visit. But sadly it was closed by the time we got back to the parking lot. I would love to go back again and check out the rest of the park.
