Free parking, a tram to get from place to place, clean, safe...please, build one like this in my hometown.

“Great Place For Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

Beautiful park inside San Antonio. The Japanese Tea Garden, The Witte Museum, and The San Antonio Zoo are within the park. A must see if your visiting the city. I make a point to visit this park every couple of years. The Tea Garden is free, the zoo and museum has a reasonable fee.

This is a popular spot for locals as well as toruists. It is next to the Zoo, so it gets a lot of visits.

“Amazing Everytime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

I have been to Brackenridge a few times and every time I forget how big it is. No matter how crowded, there is always more than enough room to run around. There are bbq pits, a small creek in one area, it's close to the Witte Museum, the Zoo, the Japanese Tea Gardens, and there is a mini train that runs through it.
