The Medina River, especially in Bandera City Park, is a great resource for Natives and visitors. You can float, swim, or just enjoy under huge shade trees all along the bank. Tube, kayak, & canoe rentals are available up stream of the Park. Wonderful setting for family gatherings. If you need a cool & relaxing place while in Bandera, check out the Medina River.

We have been here alot. My kids love the rope swings. You do take risk in own hands by swinging on them. It's a great place to lounge in the cool water. If you jump straight off the platform at the top of the rope swing, when you land in the water, you will be bruised because it's so high in the air. The swing is fun but gives me blisters so jumping off the platform is way more fun. I'm the only one who screams which is embarrassing!! The only time we left is when drunk people who cuss up a storm come down there. That ruins everything. Hoodlums!!

When the water is up, you can't beat this river. So much better than the Guadalupe. And there are so many places to enjoy it, especially near some of the bridges, The water is so clear and never trashed like other places.

it is spring fed and so crystal clear. It will be refreshing in the summer because it is so cold! It was low when we were there,

Looks like a delightful place to swim in the not summer months. I noticed a ladder up a tree with a nice long rope for swinging and plunging into the river.
