This is the enticing area where the Spring Lake falls into the sparkling San Marcos River just across the street from the TSU campus. Parking is difficult and do not chance parking at the Saltgrass Steak House parking lot or you could get towed. You might be able to park across the street by the basketball coliseum or over by Sewell Park. Even though parking is at a premium, this is a beautiful area to go swimming and don’t be surprised if you see some youngsters jumping off of the dam into the river where the no swimming sign is located. Also, this area has much less Texas Wild Rice than at nearby Sewell Park so it might be just the spot for you to take a refreshing dip.
