What's happening?

Normally, visitors take the Aquarena Springs Drive exit from I-35 to get to the Meadows Center. However, TXDOT will have Aquarena Springs Drive under construction between Charles Austin Drive and Thorpe Lane from now till late 2017. Construction will include a bridge, access roads, and sidewalks.

During this period, Aquarena Springs traffic will be reduced to 2 lanes and serious traffic congestion/delay is expected. Loop 82 traffic will also be impeded for the duration of the project.

Parking

Please note the parking lot hours and guidelines: Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, visitors must display a permit. *Visitor permits are available for $3.00 per day or $7.00 per week. The parking lot is open to any Texas State University parking permit. The pay-to-park kiosk is located near the Spring Lake ticket booth.
