Tons of stuff to do. Great equipment, nice dog park, several different sporting fields, trails, and playgrounds. Nice pavilions. Only downside: it's like any other park... Beware of creeps. Watch your kids. Watch out for yourself, even in broad daylight. Don't be complacent.

Awesome single track trails. Deer everywhere. 5 star. Easy to get lost but after pedaling for 10 minutes you'll figure it out.

McAllister Park is a great place to just get away and really do everything except enjoy the water. Bike, hike, play soccer, volleyball, baseball, bike either casual or off road on your mountain bike. Grill on a beautiful Sunday afternoon or really any day while just kicking back to enjoy this beautiful park.

extensive trails through lovely wooded terrain. You are sure to see Deer along the way as well as various birds and small mammals. The kids love to take the trail that runs parallel to the golf driving range fence. It is very much like an Easter egg hunt :-)

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

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
