Brackenridge Park

San Antonio's "crown jewel of parks, rich in history, tradition and fun memories" is Brackenridge Park (Scott Huddleston - Express News).

Located just below the headwaters of the San Antonio River, Brackenridge Park and the surrounding area have been a gathering place since prehistoric times. There is evidence of human visitation and occupation extending back at least 9,000 years, with more recent archaeological sites dating from the Spanish Colonial period and even the Civil War.

This much-loved San Antonio oasis provides a variety of recreational opportunities including playgrounds, picnic areas, fishing, bird-watching, a miniature railway, golf, biking, walking, the Witte Museum and the San Antonio Zoo. Families and groups can reserve space at one of the three pavilions or enjoy team sports at the Lambert Beach or Tony Martinez softball fields.
