We have been living just south of Round Rock, Texas for over seven years now. We eat and shop in Round Rock all the time. A fun Texas fact, Round Rock was named after The Round Rock located in the middle of Brushy Creek. Brushy Creek once a famous low water crossing used by the Indians and early settlers of Central Texas. It has been a natural landmark helping guide travelers. If you ever wondered how to find the round rock in Round Rock I have some tips for you.
How to See The Round Rock in Round Rock
- If you are going to Google The Round Rock in Round Rock, Texas the only thing that came up for me was the Wikipedia page. Also, I couldn’t find any directions to it. For the easiest and best results “Google Memorial Park Round Rock, TX” and get directions to the park from where you are.
- The easiest place to park at is at Round Rock Memorial Park in Round Rock, Texas. Also, don’t be like us and park at an emergency only vehicle entrance area. Sorry City of Round Rock.
- Memorial Park located a couple hundred yards away from the rock is a an easy place to park and play. It is a short walk to see the round rock and little legs can handle it.
- The Round Rock is located right next a semi busy road. To get a good picture you might have to step on to the road. I suggest going down to the creek bed or walking over to the sidewalk to get a picture of the rock. Also, the rock isn’t accessible and I would discourage trying to get to it and stand on it.
- Take in the history. You can still the 100 year old wagon tracks on the creek bed. A few of the ruts are extremely deep. Some even look like dinosaur footprints.
