San Antonio Parks – Hidden Gems You Need to Visit

These parks are the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and take a breath of fresh air. Whether you’re a nature lover, fitness enthusiast, or simply looking for a place to unwind, San Antonio’s parks have it all. In this blog post, we’re going to explore 20 San Antonio’s parks. Get ready to discover some of the most breathtaking and serene spots that San Antonio has to offer.

Did you know some of San Antonio’s parks have hidden waterfalls that only a few people know about? Or that there are hidden caves and rock formations that will make you feel like you’re in a different world altogether? Visiting these hidden gems is not only a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city but also a wonderful opportunity to connect with nature and discover new things.

Woodlawn Lake Park

1103 Cincinnati Ave, San Antonio, TX 78201

Woodlawn Lake Park is a hidden gem of San Antonio that offers a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located in the heart of the city, this park has something for everyone, from its scenic beauty to the numerous recreational activities that it offers.

The main attraction of Woodlawn Lake Park is its 30-acre lake which is surrounded by a walking trail that spans over 1.3 miles, making it perfect for those who love to jog or walk. If you prefer cycling, there are bike rentals available at the park. For those who love to relax, the park has several picnic areas, benches, and shady spots under large trees.

The lake itself offers plenty of opportunities for water activities like fishing, boating, and kayaking. There’s also a swimming pool that is open during summer for visitors to cool off. For the young ones, there is a large playground with slides, swings, and other equipment.

If you’re a fitness enthusiast, then Woodlawn Lake Park is perfect for you as well. The park has a fitness station with equipment for strength training and cardio exercises. You can also join other fitness enthusiasts for a yoga or Zumba class, which is held regularly in the park.

Comanche Lookout Park

15551 Nacogdoches Rd, San Antonio, TX 78247

Comanche Lookout Park may just be San Antonio’s perfect park. It does have a playground (suitable for kids up to 12 years of age) and swings. But it offers so much more: 4.5 miles of trails (most of them paved); a fun hike up a steep hill that rewards you with a panoramic view of San Antonio; plenty of natural nooks and crannies to explore; a bridge extending from the park to the library; and the library itself, just across the parking lot from the playground. If we lived closer to this park, we’d probably be there every day.

To reach the top of Comanche Lookout Park (which is the 4th highest elevation in Bexar County, at 1340 feet), you can take a paved trail that slowly increases in elevation, or you can brave this rocky hike (which I swear is much steeper in person than photographs are able to show).

We wanted to see the famed Comanche Lookout Tower (which is located at the top of the park too). Turns out this tower was built not by some ancient civilization, but by a retired Army officer (Col. Edward Coppock) who was also a history buff and acquired the land in 1923. You can read more about Comanche Lookout Park’s history on the San Antonio Parks and Recreation website.

Medina River Natural Area

15890 TX-16, San Antonio, TX 78264

Medina River Natural Area is a hidden gem that offers a wilderness experience just outside of San Antonio. The park is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and get back to nature. The park features a scenic river with crystal-clear water and towering cypress trees that provide a serene backdrop for a relaxing day out.

One of the main attractions of the Medina River Natural Area is the hiking trails that wind through the park. The trails range from easy to moderate, so there is something for everyone. Along the way, you’ll encounter a variety of wildlife and stunning vistas that will take your breath away.

In addition to hiking, the park also offers opportunities for kayaking, fishing, and birdwatching. The river is well-stocked with a variety of fish, including bass, catfish, and perch, making it a popular spot for anglers. The park is also home to a variety of bird species, including kingfishers, herons, and egrets.

For those who want to spend the night, the Medina River Natural Area offers primitive camping areas that are perfect for a weekend getaway. The campsites are secluded and offer a true wilderness experience, with no amenities other than a fire pit and picnic table.

Mud Creek Park

16875 Jones Maltsberger Rd, San Antonio, TX 78232

Blink your eyes and you’ll miss Mud Creek Park, located off of Jones Maltsberger Road, just west of Redland Road. I’d passed this park many times but the only things I noticed from the road were the tiny parking lot, some colorful tiles displayed around it, and a port-o-potty. The park itself wasn’t visible and remained a mystery to me until our visit.

Online research about the tiles reveals they’re part of a public art display created by artist Mark Schlesinger. According to a 2013 San Antonio Express-News article, Schlesinger painted, “…sidewalks, a bridge, utility covers, guard rails, medians etc. along the 2.4 mile stretch between Thousand Oaks and Redland.” An art teacher and students from Driscoll Middle School worked with Schlesinger to create the tiles at Mud Creek Park.

In addition to colorful artwork, the main draw of this park is a 1.4-mile trail that winds through the park’s 67 acres.

Mud Creek Park in San Antonio, Texas

And those ominous signs, warning us to keep out and respect the park’s boundaries? Those were erected to protect a San Antonio River Authority dam created to help with potential flooding at Mud Creek.

When we explored Mud Creek Park, we were the only people there. And, although there are a few homes and buildings nearby, my kids and I felt completely isolated and a little nervous – again, this park just felt spooky! We left after 30 minutes.

Travis Park

301 E Travis St, San Antonio, TX 78205

Travis Park isn’t huge; it takes up one city block. Located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, Travis Park welcomes visitors to special events year-round, many of them free. Events include San Antonio Ballet performances, outdoor movie nights, fitness activities, pop up dinners, the annual Jazz’SAlive (a free, two-day jazz festival), Amor y Arte (a monthly market by SA Made By Hand, providing made-by-hand crafts and goods), the SA Urban Pet Market (held once a month), and many more family-friendly events and activities.

For a full history of the park, visit the  San Antonio Parks and Recreation website’s Travis Park page. To keep up with all of the awesome events Travis Park offers, follow the park on Facebook and Twitter.

Stone Oak Park

20395 Stone Oak Pkwy, San Antonio, TX 78258

We thought the one-mile trail we explored was the park. But at home, when I searched for this park on the Parks and Recreation website, I realized we’d only visited half of the park. Its boundaries extend across Stone Oak Parkway and it’s there you’ll find restrooms, a playscape, an amphitheater, water fountains, and the Stone Oak South Trail. Guess we’ll hit that next time.

Some of the gnarled trees reminded us of a haunted forest. We fantasized about a witch who might pop out from behind one of them, offering us poisoned apples. Just one bite would send us into a deep sleep and she would drag us into her underground cave. Eeeek!

Brackenridge Park

3700 N St Mary’s St, San Antonio, TX 78212

Adults, kids, dogs, ducks, deer, birds, and the occasional motorcycle and classic car flock to this park for outdoor frolicking. Our family’s favorite spot in Brackenridge Park is the area around the Joske Pavilion. We feed the ducks, play on the playground, eat picnic lunches, and stroll along the San Antonio River.

Brackenridge also offers two additional pavilions; lots of riverside spots for quiet reflection, picnics, or parties; trails for walking or biking; a softball field; restrooms; and access to the Japanese Tea Garden, San Antonio Zoo, and Sunken Garden Theatre. And, at Brackenridge Park, you can catch the San Antonio Zoo train, which is $3.50 for adults and kids three years of age and older (kids under three are free). The train loops around the park, with stops at the Witte Museum, Kiddie Park, and the Japanese Tea Gardens / Sunken Gardens.

Brackenridge Park Japanese Tea Garden is a hidden gem in San Antonio that you simply cannot miss. The garden’s beauty and tranquility are unmatched, and it’s the perfect spot for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

The garden was initially created back in the 1920s, making it one of the oldest attractions in the city. It’s lush landscapes and stunning waterfalls are perfect for a leisurely afternoon stroll, and the Japanese-style bridges and pagodas add an extra touch of serenity to the scenery.

Maverick Park

1000 Broadway, San Antonio, TX 78215

Bikers, walkers, dog lovers, and people of all ages who love to get outdoors and move the flock to Síclovía twice a year, taking advantage of miles of safe passage for exercise and fun and the opportunity to meet up with friends and neighbors.

In 1881, politician, lawyer, and land baron Samuel Maverick donated the land for the park to the City of San Antonio which, in turn, named the park after him.

Small, but clean and conveniently located just north of downtown San Antonio, Maverick Park houses a pavilion with four picnic tables that can be rented, many mature and several newly-planted trees, and a bit of room for little ones to run (just keep an eye on the busy Broadway traffic nearby). We saw port-a-potties on the outskirts of the park on the day we visited but I’m not sure if they’re always available.

Olmos Park

Vast at just over 1,000 acres, it varied in its offerings (60 picnic tables, a pavilion, softball/football/soccer fields, a paved trail, a nature trail, and a playground), and cool and shady with oak trees all around, Olmos Park has something for everyone in the family.

Olmos Park is located on Devine Street in Olmos Basin, just east of 281 and south of the Quarry shopping center. As with many of the larger parks we’ve visited this year, we weren’t able to see all of the parks in just one visit. My kids loved running across the bridge and exploring the playground underneath a canopy of mature trees.

Confluence Park

310 W Mitchell St, San Antonio, TX 78204

The San Antonio River Authority held its inaugural River Arts Fest on the site that day. The festival featured art created from reused and recycled materials; hands-on activities for kids; food trucks, a fashion show touting clothes made entirely from recycled materials; live music; and educational presentations. So while the park is really just a three-acre field right now, the festival was a good reason for us to head just south of downtown to enjoy the outdoors on a cool, gray, misty day that would have otherwise kept us indoors.

Confluence Park is located along the banks of the San Antonio River (in the Mission Reach section). After we strolled around the festival, we walked down to the river to explore and play.

Confluence Park is going to be a real park one day…a really cool park. Planning is complete for what will eventually be another jewel added to San Antonio’s impressive crown of city improvements: an indoor/outdoor learning center where kids and adults alike will learn about the River and the life in and around it.

Friedrich Wilderness Park

21395 Milsa Dr, San Antonio, TX 78256

Friedrich Wilderness Park is a hidden gem that is tucked away in the heart of San Antonio. This park is a popular destination for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts, and it boasts over 600 acres of beautiful, natural landscape to explore. The park features an extensive trail system that winds through dense forests, over rugged terrain, and past scenic overlooks.

Many of the trails are challenging, so be prepared for a workout, but the views are worth the effort. Along the way, you’ll encounter a variety of wildlife, including birds, deer, and other small animals. The park also offers a range of amenities for visitors, including picnic areas, restrooms, and a visitor center. If you’re looking for a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, Friedrich Wilderness Park is definitely worth a visit.

Olympia Park

At just over two acres, this clean, pretty park includes lots of amenities families appreciate: two play structures (one for bigger kids, the other for small), swings, a pavilion to rent, a basketball court (first come, first serve), a softball field (for rent), and restrooms. Parking is available on the street.

Olympia Park is located just east of IH-10 (take the West Avenue exit, head north, and take a right on Basse Road. Olympia Park is three streets down on the left, at the corner of Basse and Olympia Drive.

Denman Estate Park

7735 Mockingbird Ln, San Antonio, TX 78229

Denman Estate Park is home to a colorful, alluring monument, The Korean Pavilion of Gwangju. This gift from the Metropolitan City of Gwangju and Namkwang Construction to its sister city of San Antonio in 2010 is, “a replica of the traditional Korean pavilion style of the southern provinces. The Pavilion, traditionally used as a place of reflection and reception by scholars and gentlemen, embodies the beauty and harmony created by nature and structure.”

One of the highlights of the park is the Japanese Tea Garden. This garden is filled with winding paths, ponds, and waterfalls, making it the perfect spot for a peaceful afternoon stroll. The garden also features a beautiful pagoda, which is a great spot for taking pictures.

However, your kids will see it as an awesome, giant play structure that, sadly, they are not allowed to enter, climb, or walk on. This undoubtedly causes sadness, but the feeling quickly fades when they realize that crawling underneath is totally OK.

Another must-see attraction at Denman Estate Park is the butterfly garden. This garden is filled with colorful flowers and plants that attract a variety of different butterfly species. Visitors can observe the butterflies up close and even watch them as they emerge from their cocoons.

Getting to Denman Estate Park is easy: take Fredericksburg Road, heading north. Turn right onto Mockingbird Lane (it’s the first street after you cross Callaghan). The road winds around and Denman Estate Park is on your left.

Elmendorf Lake Park

3700 W Commerce St, San Antonio, TX 78207

I’m aware that any park could have people hanging out, drinking beer in the middle of the day. I certainly don’t hold this incident against Elmendorf Lake Park because that gentleman didn’t take away from what the park has to offer: a clean and well-kept running/walking path, friendly ducks waddling about, and a stunning view of Our Lady of the Lake University. But, I admit, he’s one of the reasons we didn’t enjoy a lengthier stay to explore this park, which made me sad. We were there less than 20 minutes, just enough time to look around and snap a few photos.

Several San Antonio moms mentioned that they never visit parks by themselves, which is probably wise. Bring a buddy (or a big dog!) on your park excursions. I generally don’t feel concerned for our safety when we visit San Antonio parks. But I do stay alert and aware. And I don’t visit parks by myself.

Chris Park

111 Camp St, San Antonio, TX 78204

In the middle of downtown San Antonio, if you know just where to look, you’ll find a small, tranquil, lushly landscaped Chrispark.

Built in 2005 at 111 Camp Street by the late Linda Pace, an art patron, and daughter of the Pace Picante Sauce family, Chrispark is a living tribute to the memory of her son, Christopher Goldbury, who passed away in 1997.

There are no playgrounds here, no sprawling fields of grass through which kids can run. But children are drawn to the quiet beauty of this joyful place nevertheless. Maybe it’s because little ones want to touch, smell, and learn about the 18 different plants found here, a mix of South Texas and exotic species.

Or it could be the whimsical art features, created by artist Teresita Fernandez, at the request of Linda Pace to, “commemorate the potential of everyday occurrences.”  Benches throughout the park, inscribed with passages from Chris’ diary including, “I got licked by a puppy,” and “I hugged a friend,” make kids giggle.

And they love leaping across jewel-toned stepping stones, each one bearing a line from the poem, “Wednesday’s Child,” the day on which Chris was born. But I think one of the reasons children are happy here is the open invitation to roll down Tumble Hill, a slope running down the back of this one-acre park.

Chrispark is a joyous celebration of life and a quiet reminder to hold your loved ones tight.

Salado Creek Greenway North

There are actually five different sections of the Salado Creek Greenway. My kids and I spent a small part of one sunny summer morning walking (and riding scooters) along the north section of Salado Creek Greenway, heading east, which runs from McAllister Park to Loop 410. Eventually, the McAllister Park section will grow longer to the west when it’s connected to new sections of Wurzbach Parkway.

Parking is somewhat inconvenient on the McAllister Park end of the greenway. You either have to park at McAllister and cross the busy Starcrest Drive which is down to one lane and full of construction (not my choice with two kids and scooters in tow). Or, you can park on the other side of Starcrest on a side street that leads to the back side of the San Antonio Airport (not an optimal choice either, but it was our only option).

A better solution might be to jump onto the greenway from the trailheads at either Tobin Park (just south of 410 east) or Lady Bird Johnson Park (off of Nacogdoches) and finish your walk at the McAllister Park end.

What we didn’t get to see on this greenway during our visit that I hope we see will one day soon: Morningstar Boardwalk. This unique stretch of the trail takes visitors along a Salado Creek wetland area by Nacogdoches Road and leads them to Lady Bird Johnson Park. We didn’t explore that far on that hot summer day, but I learned from the San Antonio Parks and Recreation website that the boardwalk was named in honor of an Army Staff Sergeant, Christopher Morningstar, a San Antonian who gave his life in service to our country.

San Antonio should be proud of the beautiful trail system former Mayor Howard Peak championed for our city years ago. With 32 miles included so far, it’s connecting us to the natural places in our city and making it easier for families to stroll between parks. Go check out these greenways if you haven’t already!

Landa Library Park

233 Bushnell Ave, San Antonio, TX 78212

Located near Trinity University in Monte Vista, Landa Library Park is just that: a park adjacent to a library. The benefit of having an air-conditioned library with clean bathrooms and a cozy children’s section at the park makes it far and away one of the best parks for parents in San Antonio. Add to that the park’s simple beauty, intimate feel, comfortable benches, plenty of shade, and immaculate upkeep (by the Landa Gardens Conservancy), and it’s tough to beat.

We picked up paletas at El Paraiso on Fredericksburg and headed to Landa to enjoy them. Then the kids run around, exploring the park’s nooks and crannies and climbing all over the playground designed for older kids. When they’re pleasantly hot and sweaty, we go inside the library to cool off and pick out books to take home. It’s our idea of a perfect afternoon.

If you’ve never visited Landa Library Park, you’re in for a treat. It’s sure to become one of your family’s favorite places to play.  Mark every Saturday in May on your calendar for Landa Gardens Month, which hosts free performances and activities for families.

San Pedro Springs Park

2200 N Flores St, San Antonio, TX 78212

Did you know it’s the second oldest park in the country? Only Boston Commons is older. We visited this park during Spring Break back in March so, as you can see by the photos, some of the trees hadn’t fully bloomed yet. But this park is gorgeous any time of year, with sweeping expanses of grass on which kids can run and play, plenty of tall trees (one of which is particularly good for climbing), a handsome bandstand overlooking a garden, and a magical swimming pool in the middle (which is open for public swimming in the summer – sadly we never did get down there to swim this year).

There’s also a playground, picnic tables, and sidewalks for walking, running biking, and riding scooters. Add to that a view of The Tower of the Americas and the San Antonio skyline, just southwest of the park, and it’s tough to find another local park that exudes this much Alamo City hospitality.

San Pedro Springs Park has a rich history, detailed on the San Antonio Parks and Recreation website. Our city’s first zoo, a small one, opened in this park in the late 1800s until it was moved to Brackenridge Park in the early 1900s. More details about the planned improvements to the park taking place this fall can be found here.

Eisenhower Park

19399 NW Military Hwy, San Antonio, TX 78257

With over five miles of paved and unpaved trails and a hilltop view of downtown San Antonio off to its south, Eisenhower Park, located at 19399 NW Military Highway, should be called The Hiking Park. On Saturday we visited Eisenhower, it was hopping with walkers, bikers, and hikers, both adults and kids and dogs of all shapes and sizes.

There are trails for every level of walker and hiker and they’re clearly marked. The park even offers a handy printed trail guide so you don’t get lost.

Eisenhower Park in San Antonio, Texas

We picked an easy hike on the paved Yucca trail for a relaxing, one-mile walk. But our kids were still a little more interested in playgrounds and climbing attractions than leisurely strolls with mom and dad, so that’s where we spent most of our time.

Eisenhower has several picnic tables under shady trees and a few benches. Three pavilions (one large and two small) can be rented for large groups or, if no one’s using them, you can hang out and enjoy lunch there too.

The restrooms are clean, and the playground and picnic area is great for younger kids, but the best part of Eisenhower Park is its woodsy, winding trails. I can’t wait to go back with a few friends for a long hike up Hillview Trail.

Yanaguana Garden at Hemisfair

434 S Alamo St, San Antonio, TX 78205

Yanaguana Garden at Hemisfair is located in the heart of downtown and offers a unique experience for visitors of all ages.

Featuring a variety of different play areas, including a sandpit, climbing structures, and a splash pad, Yanaguana Garden is the perfect spot for families with children. You’ll also find plenty of open green space for picnics, games, and relaxation.

One of the highlights of Yanaguana Garden is the beautiful artwork and sculptures that are scattered throughout the park. From the towering red “Tower of the Americas” to the colorful “Giant Chess Board,” the art installations are both fun and thought-provoking.

In addition to the play areas and artwork, Yanaguana Garden also hosts a variety of events throughout the year, including live music performances, movie nights, and community festivals. So whether you’re looking for a fun day out with the family or just a peaceful spot to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, Yanaguana Garden at Hemisfair is definitely worth a visit.

O.P. Schnabel Park

9606 Bandera Rd, San Antonio, TX 78250

Located on the northwest side of San Antonio, off of Bandera Road, O.P. Schnabel Park lies on just 200 acres, but it has just as much to offer as some of San Antonio’s larger parks (maybe even more with a YMCA on site!). On Sunday we visited, it was full of families, dogs, runners, and bike riders, all enjoying the lovely pre-spring weather.

The Braundera YMCA at the park offers a pool with slides, a splash pad, and a rock wall.  O.P. Schnabel Park also has a fun, updated playground; two pavilions for rent (one with a kitchen); lots of shade and places to sit; easy access to Leon Springs Greenway; more than 50 picnic tables; basketball courts; and fields for baseball, soccer, and football.

As we walked through the woods behind the playground, we came across a few boys who were building a hut out of long tree branches. It looked like something out of a Hobbit movie. My kids were completely enchanted and began to invent stories about a troll who lived in the hut.

Next we played “camping” and Waylon set up a campfire. For us, park visits are as much about engaging the imagination as they are about exercising the body. After playing for a while, we walked down a paved trail to check out the rest of the park. We didn’t take a stroll on the Leon Springs Greenway (this time) but lots of people were walking, running, and biking in that direction.

Instead, we took a walk down another trail in the opposite direction and checked out this pavilion and a pretty overlook.

Phil Hardberger Park

8400 NW Military Hwy, San Antonio, TX 78231

Phil Hardberger Park offers visitors an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, with its 330-acre area of natural beauty. The park has two sections, the West side, and the East side, with both offering distinct features and activities for visitors to enjoy.

On the West side of the park, visitors can enjoy six miles of trails that are perfect for hiking, biking, and running. The trails are surrounded by beautiful oak trees, wildflowers, and other native plants. There are also numerous picnic areas scattered throughout the park, making it the perfect spot for a family outing or a romantic picnic.

The East side of the park is home to the Urban Ecology Center, which offers educational exhibits and programs for visitors of all ages. The center has a butterfly garden, a bird-watching area, and even a small pond where visitors can catch a glimpse of some local wildlife.

One of the most unique features of Phil Hardberger Park is the Dog Park, which is located on the East side of the park. This dog park is one of the largest in the city and offers a variety of amenities for visitors with furry friends. With separate areas for large and small dogs, shaded areas, and water fountains, this dog park is sure to be a hit with both dogs and their owners.

Walker Ranch Park

12603 West Ave, San Antonio, TX 78216

Walker Ranch Historic Landmark Park is one of the hidden gems that San Antonio has to offer. This historic landmark is a great place to spend a day with your family or friends and learn about the history of the area. The park offers a variety of trails that are perfect for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. The trails range from easy to difficult, so there is something for everyone.

I’d always wanted to explore the smooth, concrete pathway that circles around the back of the park but my kids usually want to stay close to the playground. Determined to find out where that pathway led and what it looked like back there, I enticed my kids and my niece to take a repeat visit, asking them to skip the playground and, instead, discover the park from a different viewpoint on their bikes and scooters. Incredibly, they agreed.

What we found when we hit the path were miles of the shady, paved trails of the Salado Creek Greenway which run alongside the Salado Creekbed, connecting Walker Ranch Park to Phil Hardberger Park.

Perfect for biking, walking, and running, the greenway is in excellent condition and prevalent shade makes it a great place to exercise, even during the hot summer months.

Walker Ranch Park’s history is detailed on the San Antonio Parks and Recreation website but here are a few cool facts:

  • This park is an archaeologically significant site people have been gathering around for thousands of years due to abundant resources including stone which was used for early building materials, two water sources (Panther Springs and Salado Creek), and the animals and vegetation found there.
  • The area is believed to have been a ranch at one time that helped supply the Alamo in its early days.
  • The Kronkosky Charitable Foundation made a donation in 1999 for the playground and high school students from Churchill High School put it together.

One thing for parents (and squeamish types) to know before you go: the only nearby restrooms are port-a-potties in the parking lot. But, if you can get past that (and, because this park is so awesome, I can with a little planning ahead), Walker Ranch Park has something for everyone in the family to enjoy.

Phil Hardberger Park

8400 NW Military Hwy, San Antonio, TX 78231

There’s plenty of room to run and explore (the park sits on 311 acres). But we missed a few key areas (the dog parks, Salado Creek Greenway, and various trails) that we definitely want to see when we return.

There are swings and several different jungle gyms for kids of varying ages (even toddlers). Kids were sliding, spinning, and climbing all over the place.

If you’re planning a visit to Hardberger Park, check out their programs. The Salado Outdoor Classroom regularly hosts educational sessions and an events calendar on the website lists all upcoming kid-friendly activities.

McAllister Park

13102 Jones Maltsberger Rd, San Antonio, TX 78247

McAllister has everything we want in a park: soccer fields; playgrounds; 15 miles of trails, both paved and unpaved, for walking, running, or biking; baseball fields; fitness stations and equipment; pavilions and picnic tables; a dog park; bluebonnets as far as the eye can see in spring; stargazing, and deer, lots and lots of deer.

My kids love climbing on the playgrounds but I prefer exploring the trails. On some visits we manage to fit in both which keeps everyone, including Templeton (our dog and AKA Parkaholic), happy.

The first playground has one structure designed for kids five and under and another for kids ages five to 12. The second playground, near the first set of soccer fields, is geared for kids five to 12 years of age.
