It is the second oldest park in America so it is very historical. It is a quiet park that has a few attractions within it, San Pedro Springs, a public swimming pool and playground. However, there is litter everywhere and could use some attention from the city council/city hall.

The park is right in the middle of town. I went into the water, it was nice. A couple of homeless people lounging around. Some markers detailing the history would have been nice. Not much to "do" here for tourists but I enjoyed seeing the second oldest park in Texas

We came here for the pool, but unfortunately we arrived before it opened at 2 pm. The park is very pretty, though. It looked like they were doing construction when we were there, because there wasn't any water in the park. There is a nice playground, gazebo, and open space. It's relaxing to walk around away from the hustle and... More

We came for the pool, but It's unfortunate we didn't read up on the history until we were back at the house from our visit. There is a lot of history in this park; it is Texas' oldest park but that's just the beginning! It's neat to say we've been there after reading up on it's history. Check into it... More

A great outdoor space with a wonderful, spring fed swimming pool. Spring was apparent, even though the air was cool. A great place to spend time and relax or to excercise or to play. Thankfully I had my own Texas Historian with me who was able to point out the historic aspects of the park, since there were no markers... More

This lovely park just happened to be within a short walk of where we stayed in San Antonio. So happy our hosts told us about the spring fed swimming pool- it was exactly the retreat we needed from the Texas heat. So nice to go for a dip in the afternoon to cool off! The swimming pool was large, so... More
