With its historic sites and rich culture, San Antonio is a popular destination for both residents and tourists. The city’s Parks and Recreation Department maintains more than 240 parks that cover over 15,000 acres of land, guaranteeing that families and their pets can find a place to spend their days.
Brackenridge Park offers a variety of attractions, including three pavilions, a Japanese Tea Garden, and the San Antonio Zoo. Bring your canine companion along with you on a picnic, or explore the 1.7-mile trail that winds through the park. For a livelier afternoon out, stop by the San Antonio River Walk. This public park is open throughout the year and has plenty for guests to do, from visiting museums and historical sites to shopping and dining. Take your dog on a long walk, and admire the beautiful scenery that lines this path.
The Phil Hardberger Dog Park is the place to be for dogs who like to run free. Separated for the Great Dane-esque dogs who may trample on the little pomeranians, the 1.8-acre park has plenty of room for friendly canines of all breeds. The park features an obstacle course and a playhouse, so your pup is sure to find something to enjoy on your day out together.
