Free access to pools! San Antonio parks give people an opportunity to spend time enjoying the outdoors, with fresh air, sunshine and exercise on tap for visitors. Take a walk, enjoy the scenery, and de-stress. Studies show people who spend time in parks will be sick less often, which means less time missing from school and work, as well as lower healthcare costs and better overall health. And it’s fun and refreshing. Visit a San Antonio park today!
Whether you like to walk, jog, hike, cycle or run, we have the trail for you. With more than 140 miles of trails in City parks across the community, we know you can find the location that works for you with trails that are natural, crushed granite or paved. 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!
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.
