Activities Available:Swimming Holes
This is a beautiful little park located on the cool, crystal clear, spring-fed Comal River (the shortest river in Texas) that is available for tubing down the famous chute and for swimming. The general area around the park often is listed on top ten lists of swimming holes because the water is stunningly gorgeous and always invigorating. The flat water attracts families and co-eds wanting to work on their tans, but codgers have been known to hang out here as well. The Comal is a nice river for a flat water tubing trip and it is very similar to the trip you could take over at San Marcos. The best swimming holes are located about 200 yards upstream and immediately downstream from the chute. If you walk into the chute area you will have to pay for admission. You can rent a tube right at the entrance to the chute at the City’s concession on Leibscher Drive, or there are other outfitters such as Corner Tubes or Rockin R across the street from the chute and they can shuttle you up river and then you can float down to the chute. Pat’s Place is located close by if you want to grab a beer after spending time at the river. From IH 35, Take Loop 337 and turn left onto Common St. in New Braunfels and it should take you to the chute.
