Natural Overhangs on Both Sides of the Blue Hole that the Early Children of Lakeway used for Diving Boards

Blue Hole

The Blue Hole, located on Hurst Creek, possesses incredible natural and scenic beauty, in a very serene and surreal environment. The Blue Hole is arguable the most scenic natural feature in Lakeway. Fed by natural springs at the bottom and Hurst Creek above the waterfall, the Blue Hole almost always has water. The Blue Hole is adjacent to Hamilton Greenbelt I, but on private property, the Blue Hole can be legally reached by kayak or boat from Lake Travis by following Hurst Creek upstream from the unindated confluence of Hurst Creek with Lake Travis. Kayaks and other non-motorized watercraft can launch from Lakeway City Park. Additional information on legal access can be obtained at the link below left. Before the Parke Subdivision was built, circa 1986, the Blue Hole was a favorite swimming hole of early Lakeway residents, especially the children. With the building of the Parke Subdivision in 1986, the Blue Hole became off limits and the children of the Lohman's Estates duplexes lost their only swimming hole until the opening of Lakeway City Park circa 1994.
