Miller Springs Nature Center

A new weir is being constructed downstream of the Belton Lake Dam, as identified on the attached map. This construction work will have a direct effect on certain trails in the Miller Springs Nature Center, and access to the area will be restricted while the project is ongoing. Barrier systems and signage will be strategically placed to detour visitors from entering the work zone. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this necessary project.


Miller Springs Nature Center is a 260 acre scenic natural area located between the Leon River and 110 foot high bluffs, immediately east of the Lake Belton Dam. The natural preserve is open to the self-guided public, at no charge, each day of the year, from 8 a.m. - Dusk.

The Nature Center is an undeveloped area managed by the City of Temple Parks & Recreation Department in conjunction with the City of Belton Parks & Recreation Department and the United States Army Corps of Engineers. The area features scenic overlooks, natural winding trails, waterways and wildlife.
