San Pedro Springs
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.
This park is gorgeous any time of year, with sweeping expanses of grass on which kids can run and play, plenty of tall trees, a handsome bandstand overlooking a garden, and a great swimming pool in the middle (which is open for public swimming in the summer).
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.
