This is a state park; no fee for admittance; walking trails take you through the monument area and by the old brewery site; the trails going down into the lower park area were closed off due to unstable ground; the monuments and brewery remains are worth seeing.

Wife and I visit this place when ever we go to La Grange. Always enjoy the quiet serenity of the park and the view of the town from the bluff. Nice walking tour down to the brewery ruins. The old house is neat to walk thru also. Best of all its free to get in to the park.

We stopped here on a beautiful October weekend. My older daughter had told me about the park. They had really enjoyed it with their small sons. It is a small state park. Can easily be covered in a little over an hour of so. What makes it so nice is the solitude and the beautiful view that looks out over... More

I stopped by based on a recommendation from a local. The staff are super friendly and helpful at pointing out the various areas to visit. The history behind the monument and buildings was surprising and well-worth the visit. Many opportunities for photo ops. Due to the hilly and uneven terrain, you definitely should wear tennis shoes or hiking boots. Some... More

You can learn a lot about Texas history here. Try to attend the Texas Heroes Day celebration if possible.

I love this place! The trail is about a mile and has a great view. It is great for runners and hikers and has an amazing history. The staff is always very friendly and they welcome dogs too!

Decide to check this place out based on reviews on TA. We really enjoyed walking around the property and learning about the brewing process. Part of this site is also the resting place for people who died in the Black Bean Lottery. We had never heard of it, so it was really interesting to learn about.

The park is neat and has well kept facilities. When we visited, many of the trails were closed because of recent flooding and some of the buildings that are normally open were not open. It was still a north while visit because of the history learned.

We found this place by accident, but were glad we did. The gentleman working at the desk was very helpful and informative. The trails were an easy walk, and the views are nice. This place was a great little surprise.
