We've been fans and visitors of the Cibolo since moving to the Hill Country in 2009. Nature walks, education, farmers markets at the Herff Farm, and Moondance. This is a monthly concert during the summer, the most recent featuring Joe King Carrasco. Under the shade of oak trees, bring your chairs, food and beverages of choice and listen to music,... More

Last night friends and I went to Cibolo for a talk about Fireflies which concluded with a trail walk filled with forest filled with their glow. It was an amazing experience, a birthday I will never forget! There are so many wonderful activities at The Cibolo Nature Center for adults and children. Their outdoor Moondance Concert series is a great... More

We went by on a Friday morning to see the park. About 15 minutes in we were told that it was closed for research. No notice, no signs, and they weren't very nice about it. From what we saw, it's a beautiful natural area and has an interesting event space. A little short on parking.

We had a bit of time before heading to the airport. We headed to the creek first and it's clear this is a center that is fun for kids. The creek had some perfect spots to splash about, and we saw some young adults walking in the creek as well. This looks like a place set up for groups and... More

We went to see some of the native Texas plants on display. They are marked and protected with wire caging to help them survive. The volunteers in the visitors center were pleasant and there were a few items to purchase inside. The boardwalk area is well kept and there are hammocks.

We have only visited Cibolo Nature Center one time, but the kids LOVED it! The trails are beautiful with a really pretty creek that runs through it. There is a small playground with picnic tables if you want to bring a lunch and let the kids play.

Walking trails are clearly marked. We were so happy that bikes are not allowed on the paths, it took the worry away that you had to always beware of speeding bikes. Dogs seemed to enjoy themselves too, they must remain their leashes, and poop bags a must. An easy trail for all ages.

I used to take my daughters to the nature center all the time. They loved the snakes and turtles and such. The trails around the nature center are really amazing. There are a few different options. If you go all the way down by the creek, it's quite rugged. I love running here with my good trail shoes. There are... More
