Blunn Creek Nature Preserve

1200 St. Edward's Drive, 512/480-3060
This park was named for Joseph Blunn, a victim of the flash flood that knocked out a bridge he was crossing in 1860. Once a dairy farm, the park dodged conversion to both a middle school and a condominium, and was at last bought by the city for $1.8 million in 1982. Now a small nature preserve in the midst of a big town, Blunn's 38.5 acres house a short hike and bike trail and an outdoor classroom.
