When you live somewhere for 30+ years it's hard to imagine you really haven't heard of all the really good places to visit. Yet, that's what happened to me with regard to San Pedro Springs Park and pool. I was charged with babysitting my grandson, aged 6, for a month this summer and was struggling to find places to take... More

It is a very large pool so at least the urine is very diluted but I couldn't get past the locker room it smelled so much of urine. We had other options so we left. If you have young kids the yaguara gardens by the hemisphere is great, simple splash pad, but many play options.

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
