Variety is the spice of life so try a few trails in various parks—or more. Learn about nature by experiencing it on the trails or try a program at one of our Natural Area parks. Programs are offered for all ages from toddlers to seniors, and for the entire family. Learning and nature go hand-in-hand!

San Antonio Youth Sports

The San Antonio Parks and Recreation department offers numerous opportunities for our youth to get active and fit by participating in sports such as T-ball, volleyball, basketball and soccer. Youth sports leagues are offered in various seasons year round. To sign-up, parents are asked to call the community center to confirm which sport and age divisions they are hosting. Parents should then register online or visit the center to complete a registration form and pay the registration fee. The $10 fee (per child), includes a team shirt. Hours at the participating community centers are Monday through Thursday, 2 to 9 p.m., Friday, 2 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
