Brackenridge Park

San Antonio’s “crown jewel of parks, rich in history, tradition and fun memories” is Brackenridge Park (Scott Huddleston – Express News). Located just below the headwaters of the San Antonio River, Brackenridge Park and the surrounding area have been a gathering place since prehistoric times. There is evidence of human visitation and occupation extending back at least 9,000 years, with more recent archaeological sites dating from the Spanish Colonial period and even the Civil War.

Today, Brackenridge Park is one of San Antonio’s most accessible, relaxing and varied recreational destinations, where visitors can enjoy golf, fishing, hiking, running, bird watching, lunch at the Japanese Tea Garden, train rides, family reunions, baseball, the San Antonio Zoo and the Witte Museum.
