Great trails, nice park

Took some of my engagement pictures here. A very nice park. Trails are very easy and safe. Bring plenty of water.

Brackenridge is a Park San Antonians use for many family gatherings. It is a good size and there are many entrances so if you're not from the area you don't realize just how big it really is. For our mini family reunion we claimed an area under a gorgeous mature oak tree that offered great shade for around 40 of... More

Brackenridge Park has long been a favorite of the locals. The city continues the upkeep and I am grateful for this. Everyone will love this park. I just wish they would bring the horses back.

We have not spent much time in Brackenridge Park recently, but decided to spend an hour walking the trails last Sunday. The City has done quite a bit of improvements in the park. We walked the loop twice. It was very pleasant, and encouraging to see so many families out and about!

The friends I was staying with were anxious to take me to Brackenridge Park because they wanted us to have a ride on the little train. Unfortunately, although we heard its whistle in the distance, we never saw it - let alone have a ride on it. However, there's a lot to see in the park, including several sculptures, and... More

We decided to pack a lunch & have a picnic @ the park. We first rode the train which the kids (6 & 3) loved! After that we went to the Japanese Tea Garden-(see separate review). We then found a shady spot & had our lunch. It was still pretty hot but we enjoyed the scenery. There are lots of... More

Brackenridge Park is just lovely. I could just sit there for hours and listen to the wind and watch the train go by. Even my young son could not resist its pull and sat by the river just to watch the ducks swim by.
