See the Springs in Action
The Comal Springs system consists of hundreds of individual springs located between here and Landa Park. You can see some of these springs bubbling to the surface from the bottom of our spring run, which carries water from the headwaters spring to the Comal River. These springs are outlets for the vast underground Edwards Aquifer. Both drought and the pumping of water for human use can severely reduce the amount of water flowing from the springs.
Our springs’ ecosystem is home to four endangered aquatic species. These species depend on the springs’ varying depths, uncontaminated water, and native vegetation for survival.
