Geronimo Park - Apache Shores - Lakeway TX is a quaint little park that has a lot to do. We didn't even know this park was back here. We were just driving around looking for more boat ramp options to launch our boat on Lake Austin or Lake Travis.
This cute bridge goes over a stream to get to Geronimo Park. It must have been built by some short people because my husband had to duck under the signs on either end, and he's barely six feet tall.
You can sit by the stream that runs through it and just watch all the water bugs scurry around. The water was completely clear, which is unusual, so we could see to the bottom. Also, because of the rain we've had the last couple of weeks, the water is moving pretty fast, and the little water falls within the stream are flowing nicely.
There is a typical playscape at the park, but they have two things that most parks don't have. Remember back in the day when you would get on a car or animal or whatever shape, and there was a huge spring at the bottom and you would go back and forth, front to back? They had a modern-day version of one of those!
They also had this little thing that simulated a dump truck. There were two handles, and one operated the scoop back and forth and the other moved the scoop up and down, and then the entire thing swiveled so you could dump the gravel wherever. My engineer husband loved this!! Toys for the adults at a park is always a plus!!
We'll definitely keep Geronimo Park - Apache Shores in Lakeway TX in mind on hot days next summer as it has a cover over the playscape which you don't find very often.
