San Antonio is sprinkled with parks and public pools, where a refreshing douse is just a splash away.

One that is evocative of sleepy summers is the lake-pool, surrounded by stately cypresses, at historic San Pedro Springs Park, the nation's second-oldest city park. This swimming spot is located in the bed of an original lake fed by springs. There is no admission fee. Dozens of other pools can be accessed through the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department's website.

Swimming Pools

For a little more structured wet time, like swimming laps, lessons or water aerobics, you can head indoors.

The Olympic-size San Antonio Natatorium is one the city's aquatic crown jewels, and charges a modest $2 for adults and $1 for children, with private and group lessons and water aerobics are also available.


Get out and enjoy San Antonio's year-round great weather. The city has many parks that are free and fun for the entire family. Here are a few favorites!

Eisenhower Park

Sprawling 320-acre natural area with picnic & BBQ spots, plus 5 miles of hiking & jogging trails.

O.P. Schnabel Park

Sprawling 202-acre park with nature trails, pavilions, picnic tables, athletic fields & a playscape.

Phil Hardberger Park

This new park (named after a former San Antonio Mayor) features 1.5 miles of multi-use trails, a 1.8-acre dog park, picnic facilities and a large playground. For even more outdoor action, park-goers can access the Salado Creek Greenway Blanco to Huebner segment near the Voelcker homestead in Hardberger Park and enjoy an additional 1.7 miles of trail.

Brackenridge Park

One of the city's most beloved parks is Brackenridge Park, a 343-acre refuge in the heart of the city that offers a full day of family fun. This oak-studded oasis follows the northern bends of the San Antonio River, creating many alcoves perfect for picnics. There is also a stunning playground, trails for quiet walks and a dog park for four-legged entertainment. Sidled up next to Brackenridge Park is the Japanese Tea Garden.

Japanese Tea Garden

A botanical retreat that offers stone walking paths woven through ambient gardens and ponds brimming with Koi—all at no cost! Brackenridge Park is also adjacent to the San Antonio Zoo.

San Antonio Botanical Garden

Charted in 1980, the San Antonio Botanical Garden Society, Inc. is the 501 (c)(3) non-profit support organization specifically established in support of the San Antonio Botanical Garden. The mission of this organization is to support the San Antonio Botanical Garden in its role of inspiring people to connect with the world of plants, and understand the importance of plants in our lives.

HemisFair Park

Originally the site of San Antonio's 1968 World's Fair, HemisFair Park is a lush, greenscape in the middle of bustling downtown San Antonio. Enjoy water gardens and public art, historic homes as well as an imaginative 15-acre playground for kids.

San Pedro Park

San Antonio's oldest park and the second oldest park in the United States behind Boston Common, San Pedro Park provides a beautiful and historic setting where you can take a swim in a lake shaded by cypress trees. The park is also home to San Pedro Playhouse, the San Pedro branch library, McFarlin Tennis Center and the Koger Stokes Softball Complex.


Natural Bridge Caverns, Inc

In March of 1960, Orion Knox Jr., Preston Knodell, Al Brandt and Joe Cantu, four college students from St. Mary's University in San Antonio, obtained permission to explore the area that is now Natural Bridge Caverns.

Water Parks

Getting thoroughly and unabashedly wet in untold ways seems to be the goal at San Antonio's many water parks and attractions.

SeaWorld offers two choices: sit back and get splashed by Shamu or do it yourself at the Texas Splashdown's five-story flume or the 1800-foot Rio Loco. The Water Park at Six Flags Fiesta Texas is equally devoted to getting you wringing wet with rides such as the Big Bender—there's a 50-foot drop—and White Water Canyon. Also, don't miss the massive wave pool carved into the shape of Texas.

Splashtown has a five-story tower for twist-and-turn thrills, and water volleyball. At Schlitterbahn in nearby New Braunfels, an entire water empire awaits with rides and activities for the whole family.


Just a short drive away, in the Texas Hill Country, numerous crystal, and cold, rivers lace the tree-lined countryside. During the summer, tubing and rafting are a must do.

The Guadalupe River has numerous outfitters to equip you for tubing and rafting under oak and cedar canopies. Upstream is Canyon Lake , billed as the “water recreation capital of Texas,” which has more than half a dozen shoreline parks and 22 boat ramps to put swimming, skiing, camping, hiking, fishing and more all within an easy one-stop reach.

Closer to San Antonio is Guadalupe River State Park , where activities range from tubing and canoeing to fishing and camping. The park recently opened a horse trail that's open to mountain biking.

The tube chute on the spring-fed Comal River is “the longest in the world” and happens to be on Texas' shortest river. Blanco State Park , within the historic town of Blanco, offers swimming plus tube and canoe rentals. And cool water flowing over limestone outcroppings is the draw for the cypress-shaded Frio River.
