McAllister Park is one of those places where you're in the city but feel like you're in the country when you're on the trails. It's great for walking, biking, running, and picnicking. I love to walk and see the wildlife ... deer, raccoons, armadillos, rabbits etc. There is also a dog park inside of McAllister Park. Like with any secluded... More

Excellent park! For running, biking, spend a morning, afternoon with family. I visited San Antonio this summer and planned ahead a run there. I kind got lost on the trail, although there are signs that tell you on which trail you are, for a out-of town/country visitor, I think there should be more signs or marked paths, I had to... More

Great park in the city for trail (mostly paved) running. Naturally shaded thru out, so good for those hot Summer runs!!!

My two kids, 12 and 7, and our 7 month old puppy had a great day at the dog park and walking paths. A park "docent" was riding around on her bike helping lost or confused (that being us) people how to get around. Super helpful, gave us a map of hiking trails around San Antonio. Walked a bike trail... More

Have been to this park many times for different events with running and soccer. The park is set back from a busy street and has playgrounds, soccer fields, pavilions, bathrooms, picnic areas, and lots of paved walkways through natural areas. It is kept clean and usually people around. If you are in the area and want to take a walk... More

One sunny, chilly Monday morning last month (December 2013) my husband and I were in San Antonio with our granddaughter and we decided to take her to play at McAllister Park. The grounds were very well maintained, and the bathrooms clean. The playground equipment was in great shape, and our little one loved playing on everything. The only draw back,... More

Had a group picnic with my church group and several others on Sunday afternoon and the grounds of the park were impressive. The various tables and pavilions are spread out enough where it doesn't seem overly crowded even with as many folks were there. I hear the trails are great too but I can't personally attest to that as I've... More

We couldn't leave San Antonio without visiting the McAllister Park Shoe Tree. It was a bit hard to find due to road closures and the fact that the park is HUGE. Once you make your way into the park look for the optimist pavilion. There are maps posted around the park to help. The tree is easy to miss but... More

we go a lot because of the dog park. The dog park is great they have a place for small dogs and big dogs. The only bad thin I could say is other is no water in the small dogs area. Not a big deal though because we just take our Yorkshire terrier in the big dogs area and most... More
